Corazon holds audition and announces new group

Nelson's Corazon choir is inviting local youth to audition and is also announcing a new group for older singers.

The Corazón Vocal Ensemble will be holding auditions for new members in Nelson. In addition, there will be auditions for Latido del Corazón, a new sub-group of Corazón that will feature college-age singers and more advanced music. Those auditions will be held on Tuesday, September 4 and Thursday September 6.

“Anyone age 13 or older and who loves to sing is welcome,” says the group’s director, Allison Girvan.

Corazón is a 65-voice youth choir based in Nelson. Over the past ten years the group has gained a reputation throughout western Canada for its vibrant presence, professional presentation, surprising repertoire, and great voices.To audition, singers should email Allison Girvan at alligirvan@gmail.com to book a time and to get more information about the location and how to prepare. Membership requirements include an annual membership fee, attendance at a weekly rehearsal combined with online study, and participation in several concerts throughout the year.

In the upcoming year, Corazón and Latido del Corazón will be travelling to the Rocky Mountain Music Festival in Banff, and performing several concerts locally.

Benefits include detailed musical training, participation in a fun and serious community of young performing artists of various ages, the opportunity for mentorship by the director and older singers, and the invitation to expand your musical and personal horizons.

Corazón is a powerful incubator of local talent. Many young people have gone on to success in music or theatre bolstered by their vocal training in the group.

For more information about Corazón phone the choir manager, Bill Metcalfe, at 250-352-7670.
