Talent, energy, dedication - for 47 years, each new collection of bright young singers called the Ontario Youth Choir has been pushing the boundaries of choral excellence and amazing crowds with the quality of their performances. Chosen by rigorous audition, the university and secondary school age singers from all over the province gather once a year to rehearse and perform.
This year's concert, From Nostalgia to New, includes a diverse range of repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The 2019 choir is led by Dr. Vicki St. Pierre, an alumna of the Ontario Youth Choir, with a knack for getting the best out of her singers. Dr. St. Pierre is Assistant Professor at Mount Allison University and highly sought after as a soloist, adjudicator, and pedagogical expert.
