About

Erin Craig conducting a choir.

Conductor

Erin is a passionate choral conductor who is changing the world - or at least, the Edmonton choral scene - one concert program at a time. She holds a master's degree in conducting from the prestigious University of Alberta, she was a founding director of the ETown Vocal Music Society, and is currently the artistic director of the Accord Ensemble.

Arranger

Erin's love for arranging is almost as strong as her passion for conducting. She taught jazz arranging at MacEwan University in Edmonton for five years, and using her skill and experience from her time at Berklee College of Music, arranges accessible yet high-quality jazz and pop music for choirs of all levels to sing.

Builder

Women belong in leadership roles, especially in the arts. Erin is the founding president of the BALM Society, which promotes artistic leadership opportunities and the creation of new artistic works for and by women and gender minorities.

I Eat The Sun and Drink The Rain

(vocals with Pro Coro Canada)

Experiencing choral music like you never have before: this has become an expectation of our choral ensemble! Sven Helbig is a composer of the new generation for whom there are no longer any barriers between classical music, experimental art and pop. Sublime a cappella singing spreads out above digitally created sounds by the East German DJ himself. Helbig’s piece is accompanied by visual projections, evoking distant, old-world moods. The choir will perform this feature work in various formations on stage at the Orange Hub, providing a unique sonorous experience.
