One of the hallmarks of this non-profit society is the scale and scope of outreach and educational programs offered throughout each season. The Choir also trains singers, conductors, and composers across Canada in its ongoing effort to contribute back to society, to preserve the choral traditions of the past, and to encourage growth and innovation in the works of the future.
In June 2000, Mr. Washburn and the Choir were honoured
with two awards at the 2000 Chorus America Conference, including
the Education and Outreach Award, given in recognition
of the Choir’s outstanding programming in this area.
