Elephant Child Cast*There are two sessions: 1) September to mid-December 2) January to end of May.

Led by Gerda Blok-Wilson, accompanied by Kevin Eng, assisted by Andrea Westaway this performing choir (boys and girls age 9 – 16) will offer singers a wide variety of unison, 2 and 3 – part treble and boys changing voice repertoire, more advanced vocal technique and musical theatre stage experience.

This is a non-auditioned choir but we are looking for young singers who love to be on stage and demonstrate boundless enthusiasm! The Level 3 and 4 choirs will rehearse mass choir selections together. Both groups will have the opportunity to work with choreographer Tim Mah (https://danzkool.ca/).

Choristers will perform at two CanSing shows per term but may also participate in other community choral events. *This is a full year program: September – end of May. Parents should only register singers with the intention of working with the choir for the year. For this choir level, a few additional sectional rehearsals may be called for concert and possible festival preparation.

Because it’s a great opportunity to build experience and meet singers from other schools in our area, we encourage boys and girls with school choir experience to register. The music is eclectic and will be chosen from a variety of styles including the classics, musical theatre, folk, jazz and popular. Fees include music.

Pictures/video recording: Before sign up, pleased be advised that Vancouver CanSing choir will take pictures and video record rehearsal and some performance for educational reasons, announcements and archives only. Parents and audience are prohibited from taking photos or video recording for safety, professional performer and copyright issues unless given permission from the director or assistants.
