Joining EVM

Are you interested in singing with EVM?

Edmonton Vocal Minority welcomes ALL interested singers: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit or queer, and their straight and cisgender allies. There are no auditions and you don't have to be a fabulous singer to join. If you can carry a tune, you will make the cut. EVM provides vocal training, while at the same time offering a safe and accepting environment in the company of a great group of friendly people.

The next opportunity to join the choir will be in September 2020.
