Xara proclaimed top women's choir in Canada
Xara Choral Theatre Ensemble was announced as the winning women’s choir in the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs. Just entering their 6th anniversary season this year, Xara beat out nine-time winner Elektra Women’s Choir from Vancouver, BC.
One amazing season down ... another one to come
The 2013-14 season has come to a close for Xara Choral Theatre Ensemble and Xara Youth Ensemble. It was a record-breaking year with 24 performances, a major collaboration with CBC, several sold-out performances and the first joint tour for the two ensembles. We’re so excited to launch our 2014-15 season and, just a hint, we’ve been scheduling recording days lately!!
Audition Call - Female Aboriginal Actor

Auditions will be held in Halifax in mid-October, 2014 or can be sumbitted by video. Preference will be given to actors who are located in the Maritimes, but performers from across Canada are encouraged to audition. For more information, click here
