The Alberta Children's Choir provides an opportunity for children between the ages of 11 and 15 from across the province to pursue excellence in choral music under the direction of an internationally recognized choral conductor. Conductors and teachers from across the province are encouraged to recommend their best singers to participate in this choir.
What conductors & choristers say about ACC
ACC is a unique experience, and an opportunity to use my talents to create a masterpiece, alongside like-minded Alberta youth. I attend ACC because it is a chance to expand my musical horizons and learn new techniques. I would recommend ACC for any young chorister.

I've been recommending my student's to the ACC for many years, as it is a great way for me as a teacher to give recognition to those student's in my choir who show dedication and commitment to singing and music making. Every year they come back so inspired by the entire experience. When asked, they always have plenty of stories about the guest conductor, the pieces the sang, or something new that they learned while there. I feel very fortunate as a teacher to have a program like this available for my students.

I participate in the ACC, because I think it is a good way of sharing your musical talents with everyone else. It is so much fun, and a great way to make friends. What I like about the ACC, is that everyone there gets the chance to learn different techniques about music. We are all wanting to be there, and everyone is always happy. I play the piano, and doing the ACC for 2 years, has helped me with different piano techniques and tricks, such as reading notes way faster and better. Everyone is always so nice at the ACC, and being there makes me want to smile 😊 I keep going back to the ACC, because it is so much fun, and it is a great opportunity. Also, I learn new, interesting things every year that I go . I am so lucky to have the chance to participate in the Alberta Children’s Choir. My parents would have loved to have the chance to participate in it when they were younger as well, so for them, watching their daughter sing in the ACC, is an amazing experience.
