Celebrating 44 years of choral singing, Hamilton Children’s Choir dazzles audiences with flexible and focused choral tone, masterful interpretations of challenging repertoire, and a captivating, authentic stage presence.
Under the artistic direction of internationally acclaimed Zimfira Poloz, Hamilton Children’s Choir is dedicated to exploring fresh approaches to choral music that reduce barriers, strengthen the choral artform and demonstrate that ‘excellence has no age’.
This touring ensemble has been invited to fourteen international choral festivals and has been awarded grand prize recognition at numerous prestigious choral competitions. Notable appearances include the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) National Conference (2017), the IFCM World Symposium (South Korea, 2014) and the Polyfollia biennial choral showcase (France, 2014).
“This ensemble of young singers performs with a rare vocal maturity, professional poise and musical zest! Their programs are renowned for their diverse repertoire, creativity, embracing imaginative choreography, dramatic interpretations, strong emotional connection and an open, fun-filled and engaging performing presence.” - Robert Cooper (Artistic Director of Chorus Niagara, Orpheus Choir of Toronto, Opera in Concert Chorus and Ontario Male Chorus)
