Our Choirs were privileged to work with guest Clinician Linda Beaupré of Toronto on Saturday, February 11th. Working with her was a warm, delightful learning experience!

Linda Beaupré, M.Mus., B.Mus.

Conductor of award-winning choirs for over 30 years, Linda Beaupré is the founder and conductor of the Bach Children’s Chorus, which includes choristers from the age of five through university. Her choirs have won many first place awards at both the provincial and national levels of the Canadian Federation of Music Festivals, including the 2013 overall national award for Best Choir.  They have also been awarded three first prizes in the Children’s Choir category of the CBC/Radio-Canada National Competition for Amateur Choirs, most recently in 2015. The BCC has released several solo CDs, and has had many opportunities to work with Canadian composer, Stephan Moccio, including recording his song, “I Believe” for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

Linda Beaupré maintains an active schedule as clinician and adjudicator for other choirs. She has conducted children’s choir camps, workshops and honour choirs throughout Canada, in the US and as far away as Australia and Indonesia.  Along with Jean Ashworth Bartle and Eileen Baldwin, she is co-author of a series of theory and ear-training workbooks and CDs entitled A Young Singer’s Journey, which are in use throughout North America and beyond.  This integrated musical literacy programme is published by Fred Bock Publishing and distributed by Hal Leonard.
