Participants in our Apprentice Chorus focus on healthy vocal production, deepening their musicianship skills, and are introduced to basic drama techniques and stage direction. Part-singing is introduced through canons and rounds along with performing joint works with older divisions of the CCOC.
The drama curriculum highlights each participant’s unique voice in the world. Choristers explore the power of gesture, connecting meaning to lyrics, and how to create characters (animate and inanimate) physically and vocally.
Performance experiences are provided both as the chorus in mainstage and junior division operas, and as part of seasonal choral concerts.

Location: St. Clement’s Church, 70 St. Clement’s Avenue, Toronto
