Sing As You Are
Sing As You Are was launched in 2022 to bring free choral music education to Hamilton. In 2023, we are expanding this initiative to partner with various youth-based organizations within the community.
What is Sing As You Are?
Sing As You Are is an hour-long pop-up program for children where we explore sound, learn about our vocal instruments, and build an instant choir through easy-to-learn (and super catchy!) ditties. ANYONE can be part of this – if you can’t read music, and you can’t carry a tune, but you want to be there? We want you! The best part? Our Sing As You Are sessions are completely free!

I feel so honoured to be a chorister with the HCC. It has opened up my learning capabilities and allowed me to express myself artistically in an amazing environment.
I credit being part of the choir assisting me in my career path, giving me confidence in front of groups of people and giving me the ability to be successful and grow quickly in my roles.
What the HCC does best is give people who are feeling like they don’t belong a place to express themselves, and as a young artist… that’s truly invaluable.
Through the HCC, I’ve made so many strong friendships and advanced musically to a level I never thought I could. The HCC is a safe learning environment in which choristers and director learn more than just music, which is brought together by a common goal.
The ways in which my years as part of the HCC have affected my life and who I am today are too manifold to count. HCC was the most influential experience of my teenage years and I am incredibly grateful for it.
There’s a perfect balance of discipline, work ethic, fun, and creativity that’s encouraged within this group. You learn how to pull together as a team: both musically and intellectually. You succeed alongside one another. You encourage each other’s highs and are there for one another for the lows. You literally learn how to breathe together: what could be more magical than that?
When I joined the HCC, suddenly there was a whole room of people who felt the exact same way I did when I was singing.
