Outreach Programs

Chor Leoni offers two educational programs for young men and an opportunity for adult singers to be part of the VanMan Male Choral Summit.

Emerging Artist Mentorship Program

The Emerging Artist Mentorship Program invites ambitious and driven young singers to participate in a highly selective, project-based mentorship opportunity. The program is an auditioned group for young men aged 16-26 who will work directly with Artistic Director Erick Lichte and sing with Chor Leoni at a number of events.

The purpose of the program is to give young musicians a number of unique and inspiring experiences that they would not receive through their private, school, or university studies. Namely:

  • Sing with Chor Leoni, one of the world’s vanguard male choirs, being held to the same standards and expectations as all singers of the choir
  • Participate in the VanMan Male Choral Summit and work with 300+ other singers in one of Vancouver’s most glorious concert halls. Through this experience, you will get to work with world-renowned professional singers that we invite to be a part of the festival.
  • Sing brand new music and work with Canadian composers as part of the Canadian Choral Composition Competition.
  • Participate in Sea Songs and Shanties and work with professional instrumentalists from across Canada.

Audition information for ECAP will be posted shortly.
