Allison Girvan | Director
Corazón is a 65-voice auditioned group of singers age 15 and up, based in Nelson, B.C., and directed by Allison Girvan.
True to our name, we sing from the heart and we have in turn won the hearts of many Canadian audiences in the 19 years since we began.
Corazón has gained a reputation for our world music repertoire and focus on social justice. Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and others by experiencing music from many cultures in many languages.
Named Nelson’s first official cultural ambassador in 2009, we feel that by exploration in rehearsal and presentation in concert we are all, singers and listeners alike, drawn together to embrace our similarities and celebrate our differences.
