Girls Sing

Next offered: Spring 2019
Deadline to apply: ongoing

Girls Sing is open to one choir in the 18/19 season, and it’s all about encouragement, sharing, and a hands-on experience.  The choir will get:

  • A free set of scores for your choir of a piece of music for women’s choir – chosen by you together with Elektra’s Artistic Director Morna Edmundson
  • One or two visits to your rehearsals by Morna as you learn the new piece for your own performance at your school under your direction
  • Tickets for up to 30 students, one teacher and one other accompanying adult to hear Elektra’s Saturday, March 9, 2019 concert at Shaughnessy Heights United Church (1550 W. 33rd Avenue, Vancouver). Tickets normally cost $15 per student and $30 for adults.

There is no cost to participate. The selected choir can be at any stage in its development – we’ll meet you where you are!  The dream is that your students will hear Elektra perform in concert the same piece of music that Morna has brought to rehearsal and worked on with the girls.  If that’s not possible, we will still find music that’s new to you that you and your girls will love.

Previous participating schools in the Girls Sing program have been York House (2017) and Burnaby Mountain Secondary (2018).
