About the Prince Albert Children's Choir:

"I would teach the children music, physics and philosophy, but the most important is music, for in the patterns of the arts are the keys to all learning"
-Plato (Greek Philosopher )

The Prince Albert Children's Choir (PACC) is open to all children who love to sing. Rehearsals held at St Anne School.

Preparatory Choir: 6-9 years 5:00-5:30
Concert Choir: 10-18 years 5:00-6:30

The Music: We have picked exciting new repertoire involving challenging harmonies, body percussion, and haunting poetry (to name a few). The music ranges from classical, folk, Canadian, musical theatre and movie favorites. This year’s selections will promote individual growth and take the choir to a new level.

Affordable Music lessons: The children in the PACC receive a music education as well as vocal training. This training is both as a choir and occasionally on an individual basis to help the child find their own voice and fulfill their own potential. Benefits: Studies have shown that young people who sing in choirs:

  •   Develop personal confidence and healthy self-esteem.
  •   Develop improved listening skills.
  •   If they stutterer or have a speech impediment it is not apparent when singing.
  •   If ESL(English as a second language), learn the language faster.
  •   Have better posture and body alignment.
  •   Learn to breathe properly.
  •   Do better in their school studies, especially in mathematics.
  •   Make lasting and wholesome friendships.
  •   Develop music skills which will be used throughout their lives.
