Chronos has gained the support of three levels of government arts funding bodies, as well as a generous group of private and corporate financial supporters. In 2015 the choir was awarded the Healey Willan Grand Prize in the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs (pictured), and in 2016 given a performance award in the City of Edmonton’s Salute to Excellence for bringing recognition to the City.
Chronos Vocal Ensemble is governed and operated by Chronos Music Society, a non-profit organization incorporated in Alberta and a federally-registered charity. Our aim is to support the production of choral performances of a high calibre in Edmonton and Alberta.
