City of Saint John Community Arts Funding Program 2017


  1. Rationale

As described in the City of Saint John Arts and Culture Policy, adopted by Common Council on September 26, 2005, the arts make a substantial contribution to the quality of life and vitality of our community. The City of Saint John believes that one of the most effective means of facilitating the development of arts and culture in Saint John is to provide funding support to non-profit arts and/or cultural organizations serving our community. In this way, arts and culture organizations are encouraged to establish themselves, enhance their services, and provide their programming to the community. Accordingly, the City through the Saint John Community Arts Board has implemented the Community Arts Funding Program. This Program is designed to provide project support for non-profit organizations or groups wishing to offer quality arts activities in any discipline of the creative arts within the City of Saint John.

New Brunswick Youth Choir 2017

May 19-21 2017 at Mount Allison University, Marjorie Young Bell
Conservatory of Music Sackville, NB

Clinician:  Marta McCarthy


The New Brunswick Youth Choir is a three-day auditioned choral
residency for New Brunswick singers  between the ages of 16 and 24
from all across New Brunswick and from both of New Brunswick’s
official linguistic communities. It is an intensive weekend of
training and education and a unique opportunity for singers from
across NB to pursue excellence in choral music under the direction of
a renowned conductor.  It is an opportunity for like-minded students
to learn and collaborate with one another, and for students to meet
and connect with their peers.

Former New Brunswick Youth Choir members have included published
composers, solo performers in classical, jazz and pop idioms,
instrumentalists and accompanists, future conductors and music
educators and others planning a career in music. There have been just
as many who, though pursuing careers in other areas, have made music
part of their lives – those who sing for the sheer joy of singing.

Veuillez noter que cet événement aura lieu en anglais.


New Brunswick singers aged 16-24 are eligible to audition for the
NBYC. Candidates by no means need to be voice students, but they
should have some singing experience and it is strongly recommended
that they be able to read music.
