Even though I joined midway through the season, I felt welcomed into such a kind, loving environment. Singing with other people brings me so much joy and is such a great outlet. Choir is such an amazing place for everyone. It is welcoming, warm, and an amazing place to meet friends. Samara is amazing because she helps her students grow not only as singers but as people.

While singing in choir has definitely improved my musicianship, it has also led to life-long friendships. To me, Crescent Youth Choir is a space that has contributed to my growth as a person; it is a space that has taught me the value of friendship, and it is a space where I always feel welcome.
— James Ho, Crescent Youth Choir

Interested in singing with us? We are welcoming new members for 2019/2020

Crescent Youth Choir auditions are an opportunity for Samara to get to know your voice in a one-on-one setting. They are also an opportunity for singers and their parents to meet the artistic director and ask any questions.

Singers will be asked to do a few vocal exercises, sing O Canada, as well as sing a short song of their own choice. Prospective singers are welcome to come check out a rehearsal at any time! 

Auditions are held in June and September. Please get in touch with us to schedule a time.
