Senior Vocal Studio

Our Senior vocalists are confident and experienced in healthy vocal techniques, sight-singing, ear training and music theory. In this studio, singers will further develop their artistry and vocal technique through the study and performance of solo repertoire spanning multiple eras and styles, singing in multiple languages throughout the season. Music theory concepts include key signatures, bass clef and ledger line note reading, compound time and syncopated rhythmic patterning. Ear training will include developing confidence with more substantial sight-singing exercises, as well as regular melodic and rhythmic dictation. Between classes, approximately 60-90 minutes of at-home practice will be encouraged each week.

This studio performs in two recitals featuring solo performances (prepared through videos and shared online), to be held in December and April. Singers also receive 3 private vocal sessions in addition to the weekly studio class, to be scheduled at a time of mutual convenience at the start of each term.

Mondays 6:30PM-8:00PM,
Via Zoom

Our Virtual Vocal Studios are run collaboratively by Caitlyn Breukelman and Zimfira Poloz

    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.

  • Nathan Fledderus, Chorister
    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.

  • Ardra Shephard, Alumna
    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.
