OUR MISSION

Our mission is to cultivate an inclusive, creative and uplifting community by providing meaningful music experiences to singers of all levels.

CORE VALUES

CARE

 

We believe that the people are the heart of our organization and community. We understand that each person’s experience with music is different and aim to meet our students where they are at in their musical journeys.  We seek to approach each situation with empathy, humour, and compassion. 

We approach our work with a collaborative mindset and support one another in our tasks, successes, and setbacks. We show our respect for each other by communicating and showing up for each other.

 

COMMUNITY

 

We are committed to creating and maintaining a community that respects diverse cultural backgrounds, beliefs and experiences. We welcome singers from all the diverse communities in our vibrant city, including our thriving LGBTQIA+ community. We believe in learning from one another and understand that our diversity allows each member to contribute to, and enhance our community in their own unique way.

 

We unequivocally support and stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We condemn racism and discrimination in all its forms, especially the structural, institutional and systemic racism that have led to the oppression of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour. We reaffirm our commitment to creating inclusive and equitable spaces in our programs, services and community where students, staff and other community members feel safe and free to be their authentic selves. We will also continue to listen, learn and educate ourselves in anti-racism work and implement it in our work as well as our daily lives.

 

 

EXCELLENCE

 

We strive to serve our community and clients through setting high standards for our programs and services. 

 

We seek to continuously innovate and improve our processes through constant reflection on our consumers’ needs. We are diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, musicianship, and opportunities that will serve our community.

 

 

CREATIVITY

 

We provide a space where members of the community feel safe and free to express their musicianship and artistry. 

 

We are not set in our ways and are open to learning from one another to further improve our craft.

 

ETHICS

 

We take ownership of our roles within the organization and hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards of integrity. 

 

We take accountability for our actions and decisions, are honest with our mistakes and are willing to take the necessary steps to improve.
