A flagship program of Choir Alberta, Choralfest is Alberta’s non-competitive festival for choirs. In addition to performance and workshop experiences for choirs, the festival offers professional development opportunities for conductors and provides participants with valuable post-festival tools for learning. The goal of the festival is to facilitate the growth and development of each choir in a positive, creative, and educationally-focused environment. 

Choirs of all ages, types, and levels of experience attend Choralfest. These include:

  • Children’s choirs
  • Elementary school choirs
  • Middle school and junior high school choirs
  • Youth choirs
  • High school choirs
  • Adult community choirs
  • Vocal jazz ensembles
  • Church choirs
  • Senior’s choirs
  • A cappella groups

Auditioned and non-auditioned choirs are welcome.


FESTIVAL MODEL

Choralfest operates using a "pod" system. Here's how it works:

  • Each choir in a pod will arrive at the same time for a 15 minute warm up in 3 separate spaces.
  • Following the warm up, choirs will gather in the sanctuary to perform a set of music up to 20 minutes in length for each other, the evaluators, and the general public.
  • Once all 3 choirs have performed, each choir will move to their clinic location and will receive two 20 minute clinics from 2 of the festival evaluators.
  • We will still provide video recordings of your performance.

 

The total time it takes for each choir to make their way through the festival is 1 hour 55 minutes.

Choir Alberta

Choir Alberta is the province’s hub for choral music. Through our diverse roster of projects and programs, we provide valuable resources and unique opportunities for choirs, conductors, choristers, and other choral leaders. Our festivals, workshops, provincial honour choirs, choral library, and professional development opportunities play an important role in elevating the standard of choral music making and in building and uniting the province’s choral community. We have an holistic view of choral music and actively support and engage with choirs of all types. We are the only organization that is directly connected to the hundreds of choirs that can be found throughout Alberta; we therefore play an integral role in raising awareness and generating excitement about choral music all across the province.
