Side-by-Side High School Chorale
Chorus Niagara's Side-by-Side High School Chorale program provides motivated high school music students with the opportunity to rehearse and perform with Chorus Niagara in one concert during our regular season. Students are drawn from high schools in the Niagara area and are expected to attend each Monday evening rehearsal from 7-10pm at Beacon School in St. Catharines. Students must also attend any extra Saturday rehearsals and dress rehearsals as scheduled. There is no cost to the student, other than the purchase of a Chorus Niagara shirt to wear during the concert.

'CN was an incredibly tangible experience for me in terms of getting a taste of what the professional music world feels like. With long, dedicated rehearsals, it became quickly obvious that nothing in this life comes without work put in. When your musical example is belonging to a group of 100 plus people who are not always making it their career, but still showing up and taking it super seriously, you soon realize anything is possible. What an incredibly supportive group who constantly encouraged me to chase my music dreams and that's exactly what I am doing today!'

'Chorus Niagara really provided a warm and welcoming environment that was both supportive and challenging, I always looked forward to Monday night rehearsals. Robert Cooper is an amazing conductor and educator who knew how to have fun while also working on the music. We were always set up so well to have an enjoyable and rewarding final concert experience with the choir and it was such a different experience to sing while having an orchestra accompanying us, that was something I had never experienced before. Since participating with the Side-by-Side High School Chorale, I studied Voice at Western University and graduated with a Bachelor of Musical Arts in 2018. I now sing with Chorus Niagara as a Robert Cooper Choral Scholar.'
