The Choirs are operated by the Elk Island Regional Honour Choirs Association and offer three auditioned choirs for students residing in the Strathcona County and surrounding areas. Choristers range in ages from 5 to 19.
The choirs exist to enrich the musical experience of gifted amateur singers and are funded in part by membership fees, fundraising, business sponsorships and grants. Choirs practice weekly, with three concerts annually, including the Imagine Concert, which raises funds for a cause important to the choristers. In addition, the Secondary choir tours within Canada and the Junior choir performs at local schools. All of the choirs participate in additional events such as performing at music festivals, the Festival of Trees, at nursing homes, churches, sporting and other public events. A music retreat is planned annually.
Tiny Trebles and Junior Choirs auditions are completed. We are still accepting requests to audition for Secondary Choir (singers in Grades 7 to 12) until the end of January.

Our annual Silent Auction and Imagine Concert will be held on Monday, March 9, 2020 at Festival Place.
Each chorister is asked to bring in an item valued $25.00 minimum for the Silent Auction. Also, if you wish to contact local businesses for a donation, a letter containing details regarding the Silent Auction will be sent out to chorister shortly. The Silent Auction and Imagine Concert are greatly anticipated each year. This year, we have expanded the area to display more items for the auction while providing extra room to view the items.
