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 on September 14, 21, and 28, 2022. 


Singers pursue the challenge and reward of singing the highest calibre of choral music, including three and four-part scores, multiple languages, and varied genres. Through exceptional musicianship instruction, varied performance opportunities, local and international touring, and collaboration with other performing arts groups, Arioso singers build community, experience social growth, and a passion for musical excellence. Touring further enriches the singers' education and provides an opportunity for the choir to be showcased to a worldwide audience.

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

Early Bird Registration from April 19 to August 15, 2022

Choir Director:   Elizabeth Paynter
