Choral Leadership Workshop Application


A highlight of Elektra’s year is our annual Choral Leadership Workshop, 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 treble-voice ensembles?

There is space for up to seven guest choirs plus Elektra, of which five are usually high school and college ensembles and two are adult choirs from the community. This event always fills up, so we encourage you to apply as soon as you can, as it is first come, first served. Choirs that have participated two years in a row are asked to sit out one year before reapplying. Choirs up to college/university age participate free.  Adult choirs pay a nominal $100.  All choirs receive a set of scores of the massed choir selection.

Our guests in 2019 were: 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 or if you have any questions.

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