What do you get when over 200 youth choristers get to sing with a cappella ensemble, Rajaton
It results in an afternoon of amazing music-making and bonding.
The workshop was hosted by the Alberta Choral Federation
as a part of Rajaton's Prairie Tour. The Edmonton portion of their trip is captured in these series of photos:

There is something stunning about that many young voices singing together, united in their love of choral music. If I was 17 again, I would have been right there on stage with them. Alas, choral music is alive and well in Alberta and across Canada.
