It was a chance to perform in a musical festival while receiving valuable feedback without the pressure of competition.

This year, Fort Richmond Collegiate, Shaftesbury High School and Whyte Ridge School took part in ChoralFest, an annual provincial music festival.

“Some of our students have only been singing since September, so it’s important to me that they feel supported and are encouraged to keep singing,” shared Director of the FRC Choral Program, Becki Thiessen.

FRC’s choir has 100 members who rehearse three to six hours per week. Interest in singing and participating in ChoralFest has been steady throughout the past number of years.

“They’re now using a pod system at the festival, which is three choirs that each sing three songs for each other, followed by separate adjudications. We all love to hear other high school choirs from around the city/province and it is such a good learning opportunity. This year’s performances were a wonderful demonstration of the FRC students’ hard work and dedication to making good choral music. I am really proud of my students.”

Congratulations to all Pembina Trails schools that participated in ChoralFest.
