Brava (Grade 7 to University), has earned a stellar reputation as a leader amongst the top youth choirs. The maturity, polish and excellence of the senior choir is the result of exceptional training in vocal technique, musicianship and artistic interpretation. The girls develop a passion for creating beautiful sound while pushing the boundaries of the choral experience by learning and creating within all styles and genres. Lifelong friendships are fostered and their accomplishments are a testament to their dedication, musical proficiency and industrious attitude, all in the pursuit of choral excellence.
For our 25th Anniversary Season (2020-2021), we will be following a blended in-person/online learning format. We had a representative from Alberta Health Services visit our facility and provide clear direction and recommendations for how we can sing together safely indoors and in-person while adhering to all AHS guidelines. CGC COVID-19 Procedures and Protocols Choristers will participate in vocal coaching, diction, language & theory learning during rehearsals as well as be provided with supplementary aural, written and video materials. Additional learning opportunities with guest conductors, clinicians and other specialists will be offered. Should the regulations set by Alberta Health Services change, then we will look at possible adjustments to our learning plan and format.
Brava rehearsals occur on Thursdays 5:45 – 7:45 pm (*subject to change). Interested singers are required to attend a placement meeting with our Artistic Director prior to registration. This friendly meeting will ensure that we find the best fit for your singer.
Our 25th year will be a season of growth, transition and hope as We Sing On!!!
