February 27, 2022 Off By Argyle Music Info

Dear Parents, Guardian, Chamber Chorister

It is a great pleasure to announce that a NEW choral festival is being sponsored by the North Vancouver School District and it will proceed this year at the Gordon Smith Gallery in the School Board building Feb 28 – March 3, 2022. Choirs will be performing, having a workshop with a clinician and recording a group song together with one other choir.

We are very pleased to be participating on Wednesday March 2nd in the afternoon along with a choir from Langley BC – Mountain Secondary. Scott Leithead from Edmonton AB is our brilliant clinician, for the very first, “ Beyond the Horizon Choral Festival”. Unfortunately there can be no audience due to COVID restrictions at this time, but the choirs will be video-recorded so that you will be able to see the performances at a later date.
