A Rock and Pop experience like no other
Cool Choir is a new concept in choirs that takes the traditional classical or community choir experience and injects modern well-known rock and pop songs into the singing experience. Although this choir concept is new to Calgary, it is extremely popular in the U.K with many choirs around the country.
We offer fun weekly rehearsals utilizing well-known hit songs with original vocal arrangements. Cool Choir is a fun and energetic evening out where you’ll meet like-minded individuals with a love for singing – no matter their experience. We sing everything from Queen, Michael Jackson, and Tom Jones to today’s pop artists – Ed Sheerhan, Coldplay, American Authors and much, much more! Unsure if Cool Choir is for you? Book yourself a Free Taster Session and try it without any obligation.
My favourite time of day on a Monday is 7:30pm to 9:30pm when we get to rock out and sing! Sets me straight for the rest of the week! Thanks so much for bringing us Cool Choir!Pam
