GPCA – Our Parent Organization

Grande Prairie Choral Arts is a not-for-profit organization in the Chicago Southland dedicated to providing excellent choral music and to promoting and furthering vocal and choral music education. Performance groups include the Grande Prairie Singers – an auditioned mixed choir for singers over the age of sixteen, and the Grande Prairie Children’s Choir. The organization also maintains various ensembles available for outreach in the community.

The Grande Prairie Singers regular season consists of three main stage concerts presented throughout the Chicago Southland. The musicians of GPCA come from from 27 communities and represent a wide variety of ethnic, religious, and professional backgrounds. The Grande Prairie Choral Arts performing groups are also pleased to be frequent collaborators with other Southland musical groups, including the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, the Southwest Symphony Orchestra and various choral groups.
