• A group of children singing in a choir.
    Ariel Choir


Mount Royal Conservatory's youngest choral group, Ariel provides an introductory experience in choral music. Singers begin a life-long journey in music in a fun and creative environment. Kindergarten students will begin to learn vocal and musical literacy while fostering the enjoyment of music. Children in Kindergarten will build social and emotional connections as they pursue musical excellence with new friends. Ariel will conclude their year of learning with the Mount Royal Conservatory's family of choirs on Calgary's finest stages.

Ariel is a member choir of the Mount Royal Choral Association.

Choir Director: Elizabeth Paynter 



Currently, the Mount Royal Conservatory Choral program is not able to take registrations for Ariel.

If you are interested in registering a singer entering kindergarten in September 2022, please contact


Join us

No previous singing experience is required. MRU choral programs do offer a time to allow singers and their families to meet the director(s) and talk about any past music experience.

During the conversation, the singer will also be encouraged to share a familiar song with the director or as a solo, or perhaps in a small group, depending on their comfort level.


Meet the directors
