ONCUE is a semi-professional vocal ensemble that blends tight harmonies with genres of pop, rock, and musical theatre to create a unique brand of top-notch entertainment. ONCUE is a part of the Youth Singers of Calgary, a unique performing arts organization that has provided opportunities for young people to express themselves through music, dance, and theatre since 1985. Check out some of our recent performances on YouTube.

This ensemble has performed at many events in Calgary and surrounding areas including four times at the Podium Choral Conference, Northern Harmony in Edmonton, and DCINY’s Total Vocal with Deke Sharon at Carnegie Hall in New York.

ONCUE has a very busy performing season, consisting of a wide range of Christmas performances (including weekdays), concerts, staged shows at the Jubilee with the rest of the Youth Singers company, private parties, bookings with the Calgary Stampede, and other events.

What to prepare?

  • One to three minute vocal piece of any style, to be sung without accompaniment.
  • You will be asked to fill out your rehearsal availability upon arrival.
  • You will be asked to sing a few short sight-reading, rhythm, and harmony exercises.
