About the Choir
The SJASD Junior Concert Choir is one of our three divisional choirs and is comprised of singers in Grade 6-8. It has developed a reputation of being one of Manitoba's premier youth choirs. The choir is recognized across the country and has performed with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, CBC Radio, the Government of Manitoba, Winnipeg Singers, Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir and many other events and festivals. Recently, the choir was awarded a “triple Gold” standing at the national music festival, MusicFest Canada, in Toronto 2013.
Membership in this choir gives singers the opportunity to develop their potential for musical excellence, and to meet and work with other talented musicians in the school division. Singers in this group have enjoyed rehearsing and performing a wide variety of beautiful music. In addition to working very hard to meet the special needs of highly motivated and self-disciplined singers this choir also has fun together.
The Choir maintains approximately 45 members. Its season runs from September to May.
