2022-23 Season update

MRU Conservatory is very excited to announce that we are planning to resume our Children's Choirs for the 2022/23 Season! 

The next Meet the Director night:  September 7, 2022. 
The next Open Rehearsals are September 14, 21, & 28, 2022. 

Registration will open for Kindergarten students January 2023.


Arietta provides an opportunity for young singers to begin a life-long journey in music by instilling a love of singing on which to build a foundation for their musical development.  Using choral repertoire, vocal and musical literacy is carefully developed, while allowing our singers to build social and emotional connections as they pursue musical excellence with new friends. Arietta regularly shares their gift of music with the Calgary community, and performs with the Mount Royal Conservatory's family of choirs on Calgary's finest stages.

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