Girls Sing

Next offered: February/March 2019
Deadline to apply: now closed for the season

Girls Sing is open to one choir each spring, and it’s all about encouragement, sharing, and a hands-on experience.  We are pleased to announce that we will be working with Elysian Vocal Ensemble from Seycove Secondary in North Vancouver and their teacher Melodie Langevin for the 18/19 edition.

If you’re a high school treble choir in Metro Vancouver, consider applying for 2020. We give preference to schools we haven’t had a lot of contact with through our other outreach programs, but do reach out in any case if you’d like to be considered.

This program offers:

  • 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 one of Elektra’s major concerts of the season in Vancouver, usually March or May. 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 singers will love.

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