Robert Cooper Choral Scholars

The Robert Cooper Choral Scholars program is an endowed program in honour of Robert Cooper's 25th Anniversary conducting Chorus Niagara.


The program provides a small stipend to

post-secondary music students and provides the opportunity to rehearse and perform with Chorus Niagara during an entire concert season. Scholars have the opportunity to perform in featured roles as soloists during concerts and learn from one of Canada's most decorated and experienced choral conductors.

All applicants must apply and audition.​ We are currently taking auditions via video upload to Youtube due to Covid 19. Upload an unlisted video to Youtube and include the link in your application form.
