All across the country, choirs have had to cease operations due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation with no guidelines for return.
QVE is committed to the ongoing choral education of our members. For this reason, we planned for our fall semester to be free for all new and returning members, with regular online seminars on choral related learning.
Guidelines for choirs were published by the provincial government on September 9th. Over the coming months we are working hard to shape how we will operate going forward with a return to in-person singing safely and smoothly by January 2021.

QVE Aquae offers an advanced choral learning experience for younger singers. Applicants must be between 17 and 23 years of age as of December 31, 2020.

QVE Ventus is our adult ensemble, for singers who have significant musical experience and strong music-reading skills. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age as of December 31, 2020.

Auditions for QVE’s 2020-2021 season will be held on Sunday, October 3, 2020 by appointment only. 

To register, please complete the attached application form. Applicants will be contacted by email with the time of their audition. Auditions will be held both in person and virtually. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled audition. The audition process is short and informal. We want a chance to get to know you a little, as well as hear you sing. A typical audition will involve a vocal range check, an aural skills exercise, and sight-singing a passage of choral music to gauge reading level and vocal blend.

Note: a limited number of bursaries are available to assist with the cost of choir fees, and may be requested based on financial need upon successful admission to the choir.

Thanks! Audition Form sent.
