Children’s Choirs

Artio Youth Choir

AGES 15+

Artio specializes in choral music that is distinct, demanding, diverse and innovative. They explore a variety of genres from early music through to innovative creations being crafted by today’s composers. They re-imagine and re-invent music of the past and embrace the avant-garde music of tomorrow while continually seeking to push the boundaries of choral music and performance.

Mount Royal Artio presents a final choral music performance each year that fuses music with innovative ideas and other art forms — “choral theatre” performances that highlight the season and give audiences exciting new performance presentations that draw upon the talent and imagination of the members.
