Bravado!, Barrie’s show choir, was formed in 1996 with a vision towards creating a multi-artistic experience. Under the musical direction of Marianne Derow, the choir continually challenges traditional notions of choral music by layering vocal excellence with the visual appeal of staging and choreography. In 2018, Bravado established Bravado Kids, a choir for children aged 8-14 that fosters a love of singing, dancing and performing by being featured in Bravado concerts.
Bravado! performs two shows per year, at Christmas and in the spring. Bravado! also sings at charitable fundraisers and private functions, and have been guest performers at musical concerts throughout the Simcoe Region. Bravado! reaches out to the community by holding their popular Voices at Large public rehearsals, hiring regional musicians, and encouraging youth to participate in performances both behind the scenes and onstage
Our mission statement is “Building Community through Music”; Bravado takes pride in the our family of community volunteers who help us with many vital tasks behind the scenes.
