    Arioso Choir
    Grades 6 and Up

Season Update

Following the direction of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Health Services, and Mount Royal University all Conservatory orchestras and ensembles are set to resume in January 2021 with an abbreviated season. Please see below for details (times/dates) and feel free to contact the Conservatory if you have any questions or concerns.

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
