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 Upper Canada Chorus, 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 principles. 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.

Rehearsal Location & Time

All rehearsals and lessons are held at our at our historic Heintzman House facility in Thornhill – 135 Bay Thorn Drive  – off Yonge St., just south of Hwy 407.

Grades 9-12: Wednesdays 7:00PM-8:30PM

My daughters have learned so much from their experiences with UCC. As well as receiving top-notch musical training, they have experienced the joy of sharing their passion for music with other like-minded youth. Perhaps most importantly, they have learned that by working hard at something they love, their lives can be immeasurably enriched.

I don’t think we as parents express our appreciation enough. Thank you for all that you do and all the invaluable experiences and opportunities you have provided to our children.
Anne Ko, UCC Parent
The UCC experience is incomparable. I can’t imagine a more worthy extra-curricular activity for my 3 children.
Richard Parry, UCC Parent
You have helped us give our daughter the best musical education we could hope for and so much more. You have introduced many concepts and helped her learn and discover many things, not just about music, but also about herself.
Maya Zeltser, UCC Parent
