About Bravado!



Bravado!, Barrie’s show choir, was formed in 1996 with a vision of creating a multi-artistic experience. Under the musical direction of Ellen Wells, the choir continually challenges traditional notions of choral music by layering vocal excellence with the visual appeal of staging and choreography. Bravado! performs all music from memory, getting “off the page” and allowing a more personal connection with their audience. Bravado’s choral fusion style transitions fluently from classical through Gospel, Jazz, and Broadway, to Rock without sacrificing musical excellence.
