Shallaway is a cultural agency that expresses itself through choral music. It's more than 350 choristers, age 7–18, come from the city of St. John's and its surrounding areas, and sing in six developmentally sequenced ensembles. The mandate of Shallaway is to:
develop independent choral musicianship and cultural awareness in its membership;
connect the province with the wider artistic world through choral excellence;
promote, preserve and transmit the rich folk culture of Newfoundland and Labrador;
celebrate cultural diversity and connection in this nation and around the globe; and,
develop its young choristers as leaders for the future in and for Newfoundland and Labrador.
