Be part of the leadership of the nationally recognized, award-winning professional choir Pro Coro Canada!

Do you have professional expertise in Finance, the Culture sector, the Virtual Performance Space and its Legalities or in Risk Management? Are you committed to investing time and energy in governing a not-for-profit organization, and enjoy an open discourse to further a national music treasure?

Pro Coro Canada is looking for community-minded leaders to join its Board of Directors. The ideal candidates will meet six to eight times a year with the entire board and be part of committee meetings held between board meetings. A board orientation session is held after the Annual General Meeting in late Fall.

Founded in 1981 by Canadian Michel Marc Gervais, Pro Coro Canada has performed at the Toronto International Choral Festival (1994 and 2002), the 1988 Olympic Arts Festival, and Canadian Voices (2003 landmark series of concerts celebrating 50 years of professional choral singing in Canada and R. Murray Schafer’s 70th year). The choir has commissioned over 50 new works in the last 10 years, the majority by emerging Canadian composers.

The twenty-four voices of Pro Coro Canada have been shaped by some of the finest choral conductors in the world, including Gervais, Anders Eby (Sweden), Søren Hansen (Denmark), Agnes Grossmann (Austria), and Richard Sparks (USA). In early 2012 Michael Zaugg was announced as Pro Coro’s new Artistic Director and Principal Conductor.

Under the direction of Swiss-born Michael Zaugg, the choir is widely recognized as one of this country’s finest. The choir is particularly proud of its composer-in-residence program; its appointment as Faculty in the Choral Art program at the Banff Centre; and critically acclaimed tours of four provinces. Pro Coro Canada believes strongly in community partnerships and over the past few years has collaborated with many community choirs as well as mentoring young choral artists through their Emerging Artist Program.  Pro Coro Canada produced the second Edmonton International Choral Festival in 2019.
