The Association of Canadian Choral Communities announces the finalists in the 2013 National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs.
A treasured Canadian choral tradition, the prestigious ACCC National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs inspires choirs to strive for excellence, provides visibility for amateur choirs of all types and traditions, and encourages the creation and performance of Canadian works. The Competition is open to all Canadian amateur choirs and attracts diverse participants from coast to coast.
We congratulate the University of Manitoba Singers, Elroy Friesen, director; finalists in the Mixed-Voice Collegiate Choirs category.
Winners will be announced at Festival 500 Sharing the Voices, an international festival of choral music which runs from July 3-10, 2013 in St. John’s, NL. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top performances in each category. The choir with the Best Performance of a Canadian Work in any category will also receive a cash prize. The prestigious Canada Council for the Arts Healey Willan Grand Prize will be awarded to the choir who gives the finest overall performance in musicianship, technique and program.
Each choir has created a CBC Music artist page, where audiences can listen to performances by and engage with the participating choirs. Links to each competitor’s CBC artist page and competition audio are available from the ACCC’s National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs portal page.
Outstanding performances from select participants will be featured on CBC Radio 2's Choral Concert in the coming weeks.
The National Competition of Canadian Amateur Choirs is a signature program of the Association of Canadian Choral Communities, Canada’s national service organization for choirs and the choral community. For more information please visit www.choralcanada.org.
