KOKOPELLI

[koh-koh-PEH-lee]



Founded in 1996, Kokopelli (for singers aged 15-24) celebrates its twenty-second season in 2017/2018. Kokopelli was the winner of both the 2016 National Music Festival and the 2015 Canadian Competition for Amateur Choirs (Mixed Youth Choir Category). Although the group is thrilled with these results, our goal remains to let the music be our motivation as we strive to provide a positive and excellent learning experience for all members in our choirs. Kokopelli has been a featured ensemble at many events, provincially, nationally, and internationally. These include the Rocky Mountain National Music Festival, Podium (the biannual conference of the Association of Canadian Choral Communities), the regional conference of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), the International Society of Music Educators conference, and others. In addition to many North American cities, the choir has toured to Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Malaysia, Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland and Zambia. Kokopelli is often the ambassador for the choir association and as such, has received several awards for their work with youth, music education, and the African Projects Fund. In 2014, Kokopelli was the festival guest choir at the International Kathaumixw held in Powell River. In 2015, they were featured at the Canadian Music Educators National Conference in Winnipeg.
Being in Kokopelli is more than just singing - it means sharing a piece of your heart.
