MusicFest Canada, “The Nationals” invites you to audition for the Ellison Canadian Honour Choir, an honour group for vocalists 14 to 24.

The 2022 “virtual’ ECHC will sing together in the virtual presentation of choral masterworks, under the direction of Len Ballantine!  Len has arranged and/or composed for the Orpheus Choir, the Amadeus Choir, Elmer Iseler Singers and the King’s Singers. His choirs have been featured at major festivals and concerts in the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia and throughout England, including at the world famous Royal Albert Hall. 

Of special interest this year is the MusicFest Institute.  MusicFest Canada presents a series of workshops and masterclasses by world-class musicians in April and May 2022.  Membership in any of the MusicFest Honour Ensembles includes access to these optional learning and listening experiences, which will feature esteemed orchestra, wind band, choral and jazz musicians from across North America. 

Participation in the ECHC includes eligibility for some of more than $50,000 of industry-sponsored scholarships.

The deadline for applications is March 14, 2022. The fee for successful applicants is $20. If you have any questions about the ECHC, please email Neil Yorke-Slader (neil.yorke-slader@musicfest.ca).
