About the Oakville Children's Choir
The Oakville Children's Choir has achieved tremendous success over the past 20 years.
Holding fast to its mission of providing world class choral, musical and performance training to young people in Halton,
it has become a comprehensive music education programme for up to 150 auditioned choristers ranging in age from 4 through 25 years.
The OCC presents 3-4 self-produced concerts annually for the community each featuring all levels of choir plus a guest artist. In addition, the choir performs at workshops, provides guest appearances at community functions, collaborates with other fine choirs and arts groups in Ontario, and tours internationally.
To develop each chorister as an all-round musician, theory, musicianship, vocal coaching and workshops with professional artists, are all components of the choral program. Competitions and touring also add to the choristers' experience. The choir's wide range of repertoire, diverse concert programming and its high standard of performance have all earned it an excellent reputation within the performing arts community--both locally and internationally.
The OCC gives back to its community by developing youth through its young leader program, partnering with other cultural groups, bringing the joy of music to seniors and hospitals, offering bursaries to families in need, supporting other charities, participating in communty events, providing educational outreach inititatives, and encouraging volunteering.
