  • Promote the advancement of children's education in, and knowledge and appreciation of choral music.
  • Provide annual educational outreach initiatives.
  • Perform regularly within the National Capital Region, as well as nationally and internationally.
  • Study and perform a wide variety of repertoire, with emphasis on the works of Canadian composers.
  • Commission and perform new Canadian compositions.

Congratulations to the Ottawa Children's Choir.
You have a wonderful tradition of musical excellence which you ably share with your audiences. I feel privileged to have conducted you at the NAC for many years and benefitted by the inspired performances you provided for our young audiences.
