Upper Canada Chorus: Canada’s preeminent choral experience for youth
An extraordinary experience for elite singers, UCC has cultivated some of the finest musicians in our city for over 25 years.
Our flagship choral program
As we return to in-person rehearsals for the first time since the Covid shut down, we will be accepting only a limited number of 20 students to each of 3 rehearsal groups – Grades 1-4, Grades 5-8 and Grades 9-12. Students in Grades 1-4 may register below without an audition. Grades 5-8 and Grades 9-12 are by audition only. Grades 9-12 please follow the menu above for ‘Choir One’. Our next audition date is Wednesday August 17.

Registering now for our 26th season!
Come sing with an extraordinary group
of young musicians.
What We Do, And How…
We believe in the extraordinary capacity of each individual to adapt and learn, and to approach the world with an almost magical sense of wonder and discovery. It is this innate human spirit that launches young people on a quest to acquire language, to fascinate over the simple movements of nature, and to explore the natural sounds and rhythms all around us.
At OPUS, we use the most compelling attributes of live arts to create inspiration for young people and their audiences. We do it by focusing on 3 core educative principals. They are:
The Atmosphere of Environment
A positive, nurturing environment certainly includes the aesthetic surroundings, but also refers to the strong sense of community we believe is necessary for young artists to grow.
The Discipline of Habit
Blending both knowledge and action perfectly, experience in the arts prepares students for success in life. We encourage and cultivate the habitual behaviours of confidence and leadership.
The presentation of LIVING IDEAS
We believe arts education should be presented in such a way that it causes students to engage with the world and people around them.
