Collier Street Choral Scholars
Offered to youth aged 12 to 18 during school-term, this program offers training in leadership, teamwork, professionalism and musicianship skills. A three-tiered system, students audition and are placed at the levels of “junior,” “intermediate” or “senior” with the expectation of ‘singing up’ through the ranks as their abilities develop. All levels and experiences are welcome. Remuneration ranges from volunteer hours, to private coaching, to a chance to be awarded a scholarship from the Collier Street United Church congregation at the end of each semester.
Thursdays 7:00-9:00 PM; Sundays 9:30-11:30 AM
Our Senior Choir meets weekly (Thursday nights, 7:00 pm) to prepare musical numbers for presentation in regular Sunday worship. Special music is prepared for our Good Friday Service, and on Christmas Eve they present a glorious service of Lessons and Carols. Music is a beautiful vehicle through which the Christian faith is expressed.
New-comers are welcome.
