Saskatchewan Youth Choir is an exciting opportunity for talented youth ages 15 – 22 to perform in a full orbed, auditioned choir with the best singers in Saskatchewan.
The program develops singers ready to participate in premier vocal ensembles across Canada.
Andrew Glass (from Kindersley) and Trevor Flemmings (from Eatonia), have been a part of this year’s Saskatchewan Youth Choir. Andrew is a grade twelve student at Kindersley Composite School, while Trevor (section leader for baritones and basses) is a third year Piano Performance student at the University of Regina, currently studying within the studio of Dr. Katherine Dowling.
The 2018/2019 season included four separate weekend rehearsals, with the final concert tour February 8th – 9th, 2019. The Choral Kaleidoscope, presented Friday in Estevan and Saturday in Regina, was conducted by Marcia McLean, currently the Artistic Director of the Swift Current Oratorio Choir and the Prairie Spirit Chamber Singers. She was assisted by apprentice conductor Chloe Golden and accompanist Joshua Hendricksen. Twenty-seven singers vocalized on songs ranging from J.S. Bach to Spirituals, from the jaunty French song, “Alouette”, to the somber “Come Sweet Death”. Of additional note during the concert, Flemmings assisted with a piano accompaniment, and Glass provided a cameo solo.
