Viva (lively) choristers, Grades 4-7, enjoy a program designed to advance their musical skills and build a wide and varied range of repertoire. They meet once a week to focus on the development of vocal technique and musicianship through artistic interpretation and performance.

Their program includes a fall weekend camp where they learn new repertoire and build relationships, a winter workshop, 1-2 school tours, opportunities to perform at various fringe events, and a tour within North America. Their beautiful singing is a model for all, and evidence of the high standard that can be achieved by young singers.

Viva rehearses on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at St. Matthews United Church (2039 26A Street SW). Interested singers are required to attend a placement meeting with our Artistic Director prior to Fall registration.
