C5 Choir
What makes us so different? Apparently C5 with 5Cs...what else?

The Chinese Canadian Children's Choir of Canada (C5) is a not-for-profit organization focused on developing a fundamental understanding of music, life, emotional expression, and intercultural communication for children between the ages of 5 and 16. It provides an East-meets-West experience and helps to raise the cultural awareness and confidence of young Canadians. It  promotes the learning of languages and cultures through singing Chinese, English and French songs, and enables children to learn to appreciate and to embrace the spirit of multiculturalism in Canada. C5's mission is to develop a deep understanding and love of humanity, world cultures, and languages. C5 is recognized for the quality of its programming  and for its focus on Canadian and Chinese cultures. It works to foster an environment of sincerity, dedication, and responsibility through the combining of histories, traditions, languages and cultures of the World. C5’s repertoire includes songs composed by its own members, one of which received a gold medal in a Chinese children’s song writing competition held in Beijing.
"Grandma" won the Gold medal in Beijing, May, 2017
"Grandma" composed by Yadong Guan, arranged by Zhuomin Liu, lyrics by Yuan Chen.
