New Choral Program for Kelowna Children

Published on September 5, 2015

"The only thing better than singing is more singing!" Those are the words of jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, and a new venture in the Okanagan aims to bring that concept to life. The newly-formed Okanagan Children’s Choir, under the leadership of Artistic Director Frances Chiasson, plans to provide local children with a high-level musical experience in a positive and nurturing environment.

Frances Chiasson is a relative newcomer to the Okanagan, but not to choral music. She is a graduate of UBC's School of Music and has successfully worked with many fine choirs in both Canada and the UK. She is very excited about forming this new group and looks forward to working with the young singers.

Auditions are now getting underway for girls and boys in grades 4 through 7, and rehearsals will begin in September at Glenmore Elementary School on Wednesday afternoons.
