Our training choir, the Young Voices, is comprised of singers selected from our elementary schools based on their natural singing ability and desire to participate in a Board-based choir. They sustain a membership of 40-50 singers, rehearse weekly, and present their own Christmas and Spring concerts twice yearly. In June, they are invited guests at the Annual Children’s, Chamber and Boy’s Choirs’ Spring Concert. They have performed at various functions, including the Annual Meeting of our Board of Education, the AGM of the Canadian Teachers Federation, and at a variety of events for such organizations as the Ottawa Catholic Childcare Corporation, Encounters With Canada, and the Queensway-Carleton Hospital Foundation. The Young Voices have often achieved first place in their class in the Kiwanis Music Festival, and have been recipients of the Centennial Choir Award.
