Choirs and Musical Theatre

Unique, innovative classes for amazing kids!

Something that makes Brio especially unique is the one-of-a-kind performance-based programming we offer. You won’t find these programs anywhere else in CK – they’re unique to us, and we are so proud of them!

These programs provide an entry point for students interested in exploring our choirs and musical theatre programs, and they also serve as a vehicle for accomplished, serious teen actors and musicians to gain valuable performance opportunities and instruction.

Our performance programs offer the perfect balance of hard-work and fun, engaging relationship building opportunities with other students who love music and the performing arts, too!

There’s nothing quite like a choir, and Brio is home to the CK Children’s Chorus, our community’s only youth choir program!

The CKCC ensembles are a one-of-a-kind opportunity in Chatham-Kent for students to learn and perform in a choral music setting.  Children are exposed to music from around the world, meet and workshop with talented Canadian artists and composers, and have the opportunity to expand their horizons.

Involvement in a Children’s choir is a rewarding experience for a young singer.  The benefits go far beyond simply ‘learning music’.  We employ both time-honoured techniques and cutting-edge research in musical literacy to craft a program that is fun, engaging and educational – at any age! Whether you choose the CK Children’s Chorus as a compliment to private lessons or as your child’s primary exposure to the study of music, you won’t be disappointed.  

CKCC Ensemble

The ensemble that started it all!! Open to kids ages 7-13, the CKCC is our area’s only children’s chorus. Since it began, it has given hundreds of children the opportunity to be introduced to choral singing, and grow as singers and musicians. The CKCC is fun, educational, and offers a totally unique performance experience for children in Chatham-Kent. The CKCC is dedicated to giving back to the community, and often performs at local events, in order to enrich our community’s exposure to the arts!

CKCC Chamber Choir

The CKCC Chamber choir is our 4-part ensemble. It is for high school students and young adults. Boys with fully-changed voices may join this choir before high school, provided their voice change has finished. The Chamber Choir tackles complex classics and contemporary music. There is a strong focus on ensemble building and musicianship. Teens that join the Chamber Choir build lasting bonds with peers that share a similar interest. This choir has many performance opportunities throughout the year.
