Bursary and Endowment Funds

Making a difference to children in our community!

Bursary Program

The OCC strives to represent the community within the makeup of all choirs. We aim to be inclusive in our membership and welcome members of all socioeconomic groups in the region of Halton. Each year we have many applicants who are unable to afford the tuition fees of the choir. Our goal is that no child who loves to sing and has talent be turned away.

Our bursary program allows us to enroll choristers whose families are experiencing financial challenges. Bursary funds cover the costs associated with choir membership that are included in our tuition: music instruction, workshops, festivals, retreats, theory, vocal coaching, music, and uniforms.
