Do you love to sing?
Mississauga Festival Youth Choir is looking for young enthusiastic singers to join our choir!
Under the leadership of Artistic Director Abigail Freeman, members will be introduced to music from around the world and learn a variety of skills important to their developing musicianship.
MFYC offers an inclusive environment, instruction in good vocal technique and musical literacy, opportunities for boys with changed or changing voices, and involvement in the community and touring experiences
Benefits of Singing
- Singing in a choir provides opportunity to make new friends and share a love of music with others.
- Choral singing teaches young people how to work cooperatively, while building self-confidence and a sense of independence.
- Singing improves cardio-vascular function and can lead to increased lung capacity.
- Recent studies link music learning with improved mathematical understanding and spiritual and emotional well-being.
MFYC offers an inclusive, performance-based music education program with a strong multicultural focus. We strive to create a positive musical experience for all children. MFYC welcomes boys with changing voices as well as treble voices.
Music of other cultures in their original languages will be a part of the total choral experience. Good vocal techniques, familiarity with music notation, rehearsal and performance behaviour, and other aspects of choral singing and choir citizenship will be highlighted at first.
As the season progresses, continued emphasis is on developing musicianship, including harmony, theory, and sight singing. Mississauga Festival Youth Choir offers all this music education in an atmosphere that is welcoming to any child who loves to sing and wants to join a choir.
