Vocal Alchemy is a diverse and inter-generational community choir, formed in 2002. We learn and perform a broad variety of music including classical and folk, historical and contemporary music. We are singers of all ages and musical experience, from university students to grandparents, beginner to well-versed. We sing together for enjoyment, learning, and to share performances with our audience. We enjoy a challenging and supportive choral experience in an educational environment.
In the last few seasons, Vocal Alchemy has grown greatly, and so have our audiences. Recent concerts to packed houses have included collaborations with a variety of instrumentalists and singers–just check out our Past Events pages!
In addition to our basic rehearsals and concert performance schedule, we take part in a number of additional activities including the Vocal Alchemy Men’s Workshop, regular retreats and other clinics with conductor Jordan Van Biert and other guests, and occasional extra performance opportunities, including caroling, performances for local hospitals and senior’s facilities, and even on TV!
For the past three seasons, we’ve also had a Musicianship and Theory class, a 12-week session of one-hour classes prior to Tuesday night rehearsals, for those who’d like to learn a bit more about music theory, terminology and sight reading.
For a rough idea of the variety of music we learn and perform, check out last couple of seasons’ concerts in the past events section of the sidebar. If you’re interested in joining us as a singer, or being on our email list for more info on upcoming events, contact us.
Vocal Alchemy is a proud member of the Alberta Choral Federation.-
