International Chorus Representatives

George Shield "Go For The Gold" Trophy

District choruses earn the right to represent Ontario District on the international stage by obtaining the top score among district choruses in the Fall Preliminary Chorus Contest. In addition, other high-scoring choruses may also be invited to compete on the international stage pending the availability of wildcard spots. The International Chorus Contest is normally held in July of the following year. The years below indicate the year of participation at the International Convention.
