Inspiring Hearts and Minds
MISSION STATEMENT | To provide high-quality music education and performance experiences to the youth of Niagara and inspire a life-long love of music.
Chorus Niagara Children’s Choir (CNCC) is a growing part of the Chorus Niagara family. Chorus Niagara Children’s Choir offers children in the Niagara region the opportunity to develop their musical knowledge, build relationships and share their love of music with others.
Choir members receive a broad musical education which includes sight-singing, ear training, music theory and vocal technique. CNCC has four choirs for children and youth: Training, Intermediate, Concert, and Chamber Choirs. These choirs sing separately and together, learning and performing music that is appropriate for their age and skill level.
CNCC perform in their own concerts and have had the honour of performing with international artists such as Measha Brueggergosman and Pavlo Simtikidis. The CNCC enjoys many performances with accomplished groups such as Chorus Niagara, the Niagara Symphony Orchestra and Bravo Niagara! Festival of the Arts. The CNCC Chamber Choir was invited to perform a cameo concert at the prestigious Podium national choral festival in May 2020. The CNCC Concert Choir won a gold award at the national competition MusicFest Canada in 2018 and 2023. CNCC performed in the virtual music video “We Are the World” presented by Bravo Niagara Festival for the Arts, with over 150 prominent artists from across Canada. They are frequent performers at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in St. Catharines. The Concert Choir performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City under the direction of internationally renowned conductor Elena Sharkova in June 2023.
