EdMetro Chamber Choir
EdMetro Chamber Choir was established in 2016 to meet the needs of (and requests from) singers who wanted to sing in unique ensemble, without the stress of auditioning.
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 and short projects that are of personal interest.
For the 2019 – 2020 season, we presented two projects:
- Project 1: Mixed Voices, conducted by Dr. John Hooper
- Project 2: Women’s Voices, conducted by Dr. Joy Berg
Each Project has 6 Rehearsals + 1 Dress Rehearsal + 1 Performance. (Attendance is crucial!)
