Ontario Youth Choir


More than 1.5 million Ontario residents sing in choirs. A variety of choirs welcome choristers at all levels, of all ages, and in all areas of Ontario. The role of Choirs Ontario is to support choral music in all its forms across the province.

Choirs Ontario offers that support through a number of programs, projects, and services. These include professional development opportunities for artists and administrators, choral festivals, the Ontario Youth Choir, Ruth Watson Henderson Choral Composition Competition, and provincial choral library. Every year, thousands of singing Ontarians directly benefit from the offerings of Choirs Ontario.
