Kokopelli performs with the greatest heart, spirit and energy
The camaraderie, passion for singing, and performances of all ages is magical. I'm so proud to be a part of the Kokopelli Choir Association.
Kokopelli Choirs is a community choir family based in Edmonton, Alberta. We offer musical growth and performance opportunities through seven choirs for singers aged 5 to adult and early childhood music experiences for preschoolers. Known for innovative performances, wide-ranging repertoire, and musical excellence, Kokopelli Choirs believes in the power of music to create diverse, inclusive, and strong communities.
Kokopelli has received several honours, including the YMCA Peace Medal, the Edmonton Salute to Excellence, and the Syncrude award for Innovative Artistic Direction. Kokopelli's ensembles have placed first in competitions both provincially and nationally. However, our focus remains not on winning awards, but on reaching singers and audience members through our performances.
We acknowledge that all our choirs gather to sing and perform on Treaty Six territory, which is the traditional and ancestral meeting ground of many Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Nakota Sioux, and Saulteaux. We acknowledge this land is also home to the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta.
Our vision is a world where singing together connects all people through foundational and transformative artistic experiences.
Our mission is to create a choral experience grounded in community and artistic excellence.
Founded in 1996 by artistic director Scott Leithead, Kokopelli continues to grow and evolve, but our core values are unchanged:
