Welcome to the Bach Music Festival of Canada’s Children’s and Youth (Unchanged Voices) Choral Program!

Monday July 15– Friday July 19 2013      9:00am – 4:00pm each day

 A phenomenal week of music making, friendship, fun-filled activities, culminating in a Final Concert promises to give each young person involved an extraordinary experience with music.

The Bach Music Festival of Canada Children’s and Youth (Unchanged Voices) is Open to girls and boys ages 9 – 18 (unchanged voices).  To best prepare you for the Festival week, we will be holding rehearsals in the few weeks prior to the Festival, to allow you an opportunity to learn your music and meet some of your fellow choristers. This will enable our first rehearsal to be all about singing!

On your first day you will be greeted by the Festival Chaperones who will welcome you, introduce you to your fellow choristers, and help you settle into your first day of rehearsals and activities.  Your amazing Youth Choir Conductor, Canadian Conductor Brenda Zadorsky, along with Canadian Conductors Wendy Landon & Jacquie Norman, will lead you through each day of rehearsals.

Facilitating the week’s events are your Youth Choir Festival Chaperones. They will be with you all week to ensure you have a great week of music and friendship. They look forward to assisting the choir and the conductors with rehearsals, lunch and our extra activities. Images from our 2011 Youth Program can be found at: www.karenbrownphotography.com.

Each day we get right to the music! Once everyone arrives at the rehearsal site, we begin with a full rehearsal. Part way through the morning we break into ‘sectionals’ – this allows each part to work with a conductor on their particular sections; altos work on their part, sopranos on their part, and so on.  After lunch we have recreational time, and more rehearsal before the end of the day. The Youth Choir Registration of only $150 (CAN) includes:

Daily nutritious snacks

Supervised recreational activities

All music

T-shirt to be worn at the Concert

Dinner on Concert Day

 Friday July 15th is Concert Day! Concert is at 8pm.
