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! 


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
