The mission of the choir is to engage and enrich the lives of young people through high caliber choral education and experience, enhancing the cultural life of the community in which we live.
The Georgian Bay Children's Choir is a community choir for children and youth aged 5 through 18, drawing its members from the southern Georgian Bay region of Ontario, with Owen Sound as the major centre.
Our choral training program is committed to excellence through education, performance, competition and participation in international choral festivals. Each level of our program - Little Jewels, Middle C's, and Lyrica - is designed to develop musical skills and a love of choral singing.
Concerts are held twice a year in December and May, showcasing the choir’s broad repertoire; which includes traditional, Canadian, contemporary, folk, world music, spirituals, broadway and sacred music. The choir has performed with the Georgian Bay Symphony and has been recommended for provincial competition several times.
Other choir activities include festivals, workshops, music camps, vocal coaching, travel, education, community partnerships & cultural enrichment activities.
Lyrica has participated in festivals and competitions from coast to coast, and internationally. The choir has been invited to participate in numerous choral workshops, and has hosted choirs from around the world.
