Welcome to our 2022-2023 musical season!

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble is a dynamic community of young musicians from the Metro Vancouver / Sea to Sky area, Canada. The Ensemble brings raw energy and a whole new style to the Vancouver music scene. What started as Celtic is now a spirited no-boundaries exploration of music that inspires us. The result is a full-spectrum music experience that defies labels and spans conventional genres.

Whole new style of music to the lower mainland music scene.

  Join our Program

We believe that kids are motivated to learn and grow as musicians when they are inspired by the music and the social setting where it happens.

What better way to make music fun?
