Season update

Following the direction of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Health Services and Mount Royal University, we have been advised that all Conservatory orchestras and ensembles will be able to resume once we reach stage 4 of Alberta's COVID-19 protocols. While we cannot anticipate precisely when that might be, we do anticipate being able to resume all of our ensembles at some point in the 2021/22 season. We are very excited to welcome both new and returning students to join with us as we eagerly anticipate the start of a new season and the return of our ensembles! 


Mount Royal Conservatory's newest and 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 from Kindergarten to Grade 1 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: Jamie Popowich

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.
