About Chorus Niagara Children’s Choir

CNCC is a growing part of the Chorus Niagara family. A dynamic choir for children ages 5-16 years of age; members are introduced to the basics of choral singing as they prepare for concerts. The choir is comprised of three smaller choirs – Training Choir, Intermediate Choir and Concert Choir. The smaller choirs sing separately and together, learning and performing music that is appropriate for their age and skill level.

CNCC have performed in their own concerts, as guests of Chorus Niagara, Niagara Symphony Orchestra, Choralis Camerata and other arts organizations. CNCC performs in Partridge Hall at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in St. Catharines as well as a variety of other venues.

Chorus Niagara Children’s Choir offers children in the Niagara region the opportunity to develop their musical knowledge, build relationships and share their love of music with others. Choir members receive a broad musical education which includes sight singing, ear training, music theory and vocal technique. Our goal is to build a confident community of young singers who love to sing.

We rehearse September to May on Wednesday evenings at First Grantham United Church on the lower level. 415 Linwell Road., St. Catharines, ON.
