Our Winter/Spring session will focus on great choral music and songs from the length and breadth of our country. Highlighting Indigenous composers and songwriters (Andrew Balfour), French songwriters (Gilles Vigneault, Michel Rivard etc) as well as Canadian legends like Joni Mitchell, Stan Rogers and Ian Tyson, as well as more contemporary pop songs by Woodpigeon and Dave Gunning. We’ll also look at the Canadian choral tradition, including works by Srul Irving Glick and Eleanor Daley. We’ll even sing in a made up language as part of a medley of the music from Cirque du Soleil.
It’s going to be a lot of fun and we will have a couple of chances to perform this repertoire. In addition to our own concert in May, we have been invited back to sing in the ProArts at Noon series at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer. It’s simply one of the best places to sing in Calgary and the audiences are very appreciative.
