More than 400,000 Albertans sing in choirs. They sing for a long list of reasons, including the opportunity to build communities, meet new friends, improve one's overall health, develop new skills, and partake in an artistic and expressive endeavour. A variety of choirs welcome choristers at all levels, of all ages, and in all areas of the province; these include community-based children's choirs, non-auditioned adult choirs, church choirs, neurodiverse choirs, vocal jazz ensembles, and symphonic choirs. The role of Choir Alberta is to support choral music in all its forms across the province.
Choir Alberta offers that support through a proven and innovative roster of programs, projects, and services. These include professional development opportunities for teachers and conductors, workshops for choristers, regional choral festivals, the provincial honour choirs, fundraising opportunities for members, concerts featuring world-renowned artists, and the choral lending library of 200,000 octavos. Every year, thousands of singing Albertans directly benefit from the offerings of Choir Alberta.
