The Alberta Children's Choir program is a regional honour choir for singers ages 11-15, and provides a unique opportunity for excellent young choristers to join forces in the pursuit of choral music excellence.
Teachers & conductors are invited to recommend exemplary choristers to the Alberta Children's Choir program.
How to recommend choristers to the Alberta Children's Choir:
Teachers/conductors select up to 8 choristers from each choir they conduct.
Teachers/conductors give those choristers the Information Letter for Parents and the Chorister Questionnaire.
Choristers return the completed Chorister & Parent Questionnaires to their teacher/conductor.
Teachers/conductors complete a Recommendation Rubric for each of the recommended choristers.
Teachers complete the Online Recommendation Form, attaching a scanned copy of each Rubric and Questionnaire.
An independent jury reviews the Rubrics and Questionnaires, and establishes a final roster for the choir.
Once the roster has been established, all teachers, parents, and choristers are notified via email.
Parents register their children through an online registration form. Folders are sent directly to the chorister's home, and choristers are given access to a webpage containing music and practice tracks.
