Chamber Choir

Edmonton Metropolitan Chamber Choir

Edmonton Metropolitan Chamber Choir was established in 2016 to meet the needs of and requests from
singers who wanted to sing in a small ensemble, without the stress of auditioning. Singing in a small
ensemble allows each singer to make a greater impact on the whole, provides a high level of training with
deeper learning experiences, and enables singers to explore and perform music that is suited to (and often
composed for) a chamber-sized choir.

The Chamber Choir is supported by Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus Society, and is organized on a project-by-
project basis. Singers are welcome to join – to sing in specific projects that are of personal interest.

No auditions! Please register in advance.

For the 2017-2018 season, we are planning two projects:

  • Project 1, a January concert for Women’s Voices, conducted by Joy Berg
