Elektra’s annual Choral Encounters (formerly Choral Leadership Workshop) is one of our most popular and diverse events. Up to six guest choirs of all ages join Elektra in a safe and non-competitive evening of singing, learning and laughter.  Choral Encounters embodies life-long learning at its best!

Spaces fill up early on a first-come, first-served basis, while also taking into consideration the diversity of the choirs and number of participants. Apply early so as not to be disappointed. Choirs will sing for each other in person. No online option is available at this time. Choirs that have participated two years in a row are asked to sit out a year before reapplying.

Choral Encounters is free for high school and college/university choirs. Adult community choirs pay a nominal fee of $100 plus GST to participate. All participating choirs receive a set of scores for the massed choir selection at no cost.

The public is welcome to attend (free of charge) to observe our work and hear the performances by Elektra and these other fine choirs.

Note that COVID health guidelines such as masking or reducing the number of participating choirs may be in effect in May 2024.
