Now entering its 20th season, i Coristi Chamber Choir is an ensemble of 22 singers. Membership is by audition and encompasses a broad cross section of the population: accountants, teachers, computer programmers, nanotechnologists, designers, theologians, administrators, office personnel - singers for whom music is their vocation, and singers for whom music is their avocation!

The name i Coristi  is Italian, meaning "The Choral Singers". Noted for its unique, eclectic programming, the choir focuses on a cappella masterpieces from the Renaissance to the 21st century, presented in three main concerts each season; the choir also performs at seniors' facilities and various local businesses and gatherings.

Awarded 2nd-Prize three times (2006, 2008, 2011) and 1st-Prize in 2013 in the Chamber Choir category of the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs,i Coristi has been heard on national and regional broadcasts of CBC Radio, has performed with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, toured to Ontario and Manitoba, and been invited to perform in Toronto and Winnipeg at the national biennial conferences - Podium - of the Association of Canadian Choral Communities. During the summer of 2009, i Coristi completed a highly successful tour to England and Wales, which included a performance at the prestigious International Eisteddfod Festival in Llangollen, Wales.

In the summer of 2011, i Coristi was invited to perform at Festival 500 in St John's Newfoundland, and appeared with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, performing Handel's Messiah in December 2011, and Poulenc's Gloria in February 2012. 

The choir has issued three CDs, the most recent of which, Songs of the Soul, was released in the fall of 2008 in celebration of the choir's 15th season.
