2021-22 Season Update

MRU Conservatory is very excited to announce that we are planning to resume our Children's Choirs for the 2021/22 Season! 

Next Open Rehearsals are January 12th and 19th!


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.

Choir Director:   Elizabeth Paynter
