NEW! ESA COMMUNITY CHOIR – for parents, alumni and the broader community

Calling all ESA parents, alumni, parents of alumni and supportive Community members!
LOVE TO SING? Join ESA’s new COMMUNITY CHOIR (hip cool name tbd).

This will be a six week pop up choir, rehearsing one evening a week at ESA from January through February 2018, culminating in a performance at an ESA Event TBD in late February/early March. We are considering Tuesday evenings 7-8pm, or possibly Mondays or Wednesdays.

No experience necessary. All levels welcome! Songs will be chosen to suit the group.

Cost to enroll will be $60 total per person, for the 6 weeks of rehearsals plus performance(s). The funds collected will cover choir expenses and support future School Council fundraising initiatives. Payments will be made through School Cash Online in December, leading up to the start of rehearsals.

Mary Bella, a current ESA Parent, will be conducting and organizing the group. Mary has a Master of Music in Vocal Performance and a Graduate Opera Diploma. She has 5 years choral conducting experience and 20 years of professional choral singing under her belt, including 15 years with the Canadian Opera Company Chorus. She has also served choirs for many years as both manager and board president. Mary believes that a choir could bring together the broader ESA community in a very special way, in addition to raising funds for our school
