Saskatchewan Youth Choir is an exciting opportunity for talented youth ages 15 – 22 to perform in an SATB balanced choir with the best singers in Saskatchewan. The program develops singers ready to participate in premier vocal ensembles across Canada.  Singers will be eligible to represent Saskatchewan as part of the National Youth Choir and as part of other, provincially-sponsored choral projects.

As part of their training, singers will prepare a varied program of exciting repertoire designed to enthrall audiences of all ages.  The Choir will share their choral proficiency with high school and community ensembles in workshop scenarios and perform at schools, senior residences and community facilities while touring Saskatchewan.

The Choir will perform under the direction of Mrs. Marcia McLean, an accomplished choral director with a significant and varied career as a choral singer, conductor, clinician, adjudicator and private voice teacher.  Marcia is currently the Artistic Director of the Swift Current Oratorio Choir and the Prairie Spirit Chamber Singers.
