A highlight of Elektra’s year is our annual Choral Leadership Workshop for Young Women, in which we bring choirs together for one evening to sing and learn.  The focus?  How can we as individual singers in a choir take a leadership role within our ensembles?

We have six guest choirs this year joining Elektra, performing separately and working on massed choir activities. All 240 singers will join together to learn Kathleen Allan’s O Sister (Keep Me Steady Through the Storm). 

Our guests are:

Burnaby Central Women’s Choir, Carrie Taylor, director
Crescent Women’s Choir, Samara Ripley, director
Higher Ground Women’s Choir, Janet Warren, director
Little Flower Academy Senior Choir, Marizza Mislang, director
Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir, Betty-Ann Braun, director
Trinity Western Women’s Choir, Cathrie Yuen, director

The public is warmly welcome to observe our work and the performances by Elektra and these fine choirs as each ensemble shares their music and learns more about being a leader in her own choir.

Conductors: please email us at to be added to the list for email notifications about future editions of this annual program.

Thank you for your interest in singing and learning with Elektra Women’s Choir!
