Whistler Chorus

Thank You!

As we get ready to start the 25th season of the Whistler Children’s Chorus we’d like to thank two organizations whose grants help make choir possible.

In 2017 the Whistler Children’s Chorus was a recipient of the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Community Enrichment Program grant. Funding from this grant is instrumental in allowing the choir to remain sustainable and to keep the choir fees manageable and this activity accessible to all. The choir has received funding from this grant from 2011 to 2017.

The WCC has also been the recipient of grants from Arts Whistler in 2015, 2016 and 2017. This grant has allowed us to bring in clinicians to work with the choir and to participate in music festivals such as the Kiwanis Music Festival and the Howe Sound Music Festival.

Whistler Children’s Chorus has a lot of sing about!  Our 2017 – 2018 season is about to begin and this year we’re celebrating twenty-five years of making music in Whistler.
Registration is now open.  You may register online or pick up a registration brochure from the Whistler Public Library, Maury Young Centre for the Arts or at any of the Whistler elementary schools.  Rehearsals are on Tuesdays – Junior choir (ages 6 to 8) from 4 to 5 pm & Intermediate choir (ages 9 to 13) from 4:30 to 5:30 pm.  We rehearse at the Maury Young Arts Centre (formerly Millennium Place) in Whistler village.
Our 2017 – 2018 season begins with preparations for BC Culture Days at the end of September and the municipal Remembrance Day ceremony in early November.  Then it’s Christmas and winter songs galore!  On December 10th, we will be presenting A Classical Christmas– a Christmas pageant complete with costumes, narrators, props, music instruments and lots of singing.  We’ll be carolling during the holiday season and, of course, hosting the 34th annual Christmas Eve Carol Service.
The Whistler Children’s Chorus is a non-auditioned community choir for children and youth.  Everyone is welcome!

Get Ready to Sing – 2016 / 2017 choir year

Planning is well underway for the upcoming Whistler Children’s Chorus year of singing. Three formal concerts have been booked. On October 30th the choir will present This is Halloween – a fall concert complete with costumes, props and songs. The choir will host their annual Christmas concert to benefit the Whistler Food Bank on December 11th. Christmas Tales will be a combination of songs and storytelling focusing on winter and Christmas. Shortly after Earth Day in April 2017, the choir will present their annual spring concert – Honour the Earth. Of course, there’s lots more singing for International Day of Peace, Remembrance Day, Bizarre Bazaar, Santa’s arrival at the Chateau Whistler and the Christmas Eve Carol Service. As well, we’ll return in the spring to the Howe Sound Music Festival and hope to take part in the Vancouver Kiwanis Choral Festival.

Whistler Children’s Chorus ends season on a high note

The children’s choir finished up a year filled with singing, dancing and fun with their concert on Sunday, May 1st at the Catholic church. Beginning in September with the UN International Day of Peace, the choir had a busy fall They presented Annie the musical (with only 7 weeks of rehearsals!), sang for the municipal Remembrance Day ceremony as well as several Christmas gigs including the annual Christmas Eve Carol Service.

Christmas Carolling 2015

The choir traveled to Squamish to take part in the Howe Sound Music festival in the spring which was a great experience for all.

Howe Sound Music Festival

A lot of repertoire was explored this year from unison to 3 part harmonies. The singers were up to the challenge and sang beautifully.

Christmas Caroling

Thank you to everyone who came out this evening to share the holiday spirit with members of the Whistler Children’s Chorus, Whistler Singers, Whistler Community Band, Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church, and Whistler Waldorf School as we caroled through Whistler Village and then held a Holiday Sing-Along at Millennium Place.

A big thank you to the Whistler Arts Council and staff who provided the venue and made this event possible.
