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! 

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.
