Spring Concert Time!

It’s hard to believe that it’s spring concert season again! If you’re in Whistler and looking to enjoy some choral music, next weekend has lots to offer.

Coming up first on Saturday, April 27, The Whistler Singers will present “Sing into Spring”, along with our friends from the Inspirito Vocal Ensemble. The singers from Inspirito will be visiting Whistler from Gibsons, BC, and they are lead by the incredible Sarona Mynhardt. This concert will take place at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church at 7:30 p.m. on April 27, and admission is by donation.

Next up is the Whistler Children’s Chorus Spring Concert, taking place at Whistler Public Library on Sunday, April 28 at 5 p.m. The kids have been working SO hard this season, and they’ll be singing a great mix of familiar tunes and some newer choral works, all exploring the wonders of the natural world. This concert is free to attend and all ages are welcome!

We hope to see you at one (or both) of these great events!

Thanks to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation!

You might have seen the photos below on social media recently – we’re celebrating a grant from the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation. The Whistler Singers, Whistler Children’s Chorus, and Whistler Chamber Music Society are now the proud collective owners of a storage container for all of our sheet music, choir risers, and other musical bits and pieces. We’re very grateful for the WB Foundation’s financial support of this project!

Whistler Children’s Chorus Partners with Whistler Public Library

Whistler Children’s Chorus is excited to announce that we are partnering with the Whistler Public Library for our 2018/2019 season.
As a result, there is no longer a registration fee. That’s right – choir is now free for every child in Whistler!
Check out the Whistler Public Library website for more information.

Remembrance Day

Our singers have been hard at work learning their songs for tomorrow’s municipal Remembrance Day ceremony here in Whistler.

Through the efforts of local citizens, our cenotaph has been moved from the village fire hall to a more accessible site in Olympic Plaza. This will be our first year at the new site so we took a short ‘field trip’ a few weeks ago during choir practice to visit the site and sing our songs there.

This year’s ceremony will also be the first time that the bilingual version of O Canada will be sung as part of our ceremony.

If you’re in Whistler on Saturday, November 11th, our Remembrance Day ceremony begins at 10:30am at the cenotaph in Olympic Plaza (by the flags). Come and join the Whistler Children’s Chorus and the Whistler Singers as we honour those brave men and women who have served our country.

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.

Ready to sing? Come join us for the 2017/2018 season. Register Now!
