Newfoundland youth to compete in US and Ireland 

This week, members of Shallaway Youth Choir’s Jubilate Ensemble (Grades 6-9), led by Associate Director Jennifer Hart, are competing at the WorldStrides Performing Arts Orlando Heritage Festival in the US. Young performers will experience a music education and exchange experience and perform for a panel of three internationally renowned adjudicators.

On April 25th, the senior choristers of Shallaway’s Exsultate Ensemble (ages 15-25), led by the Artistic Team of Kellie Walsh (Artistic Director), Jennifer Hart (Associate Director) and Leslee Heys (Collaborative Pianist), will represent Canada in the prestigious Fleischmann International Trophy Competition of the 68th edition of the Cork Choral Festival. Only the finest amateur international choirs are selected to compete in this a capella competition. 

Both of these opportunities illustrate Shallaway’s mission of creating exciting leadership and cultural opportunities for Newfoundland & Labrador youth in an international context.
