Frank RackowCalgary Choir

Do you love to sing? Vocal Latitudes is a community choir in Calgary that is looking for enthusiastic choristers to join! We are looking forward to an exciting 2022-23 season. You don’t need to be able to read music or have previous choral experience.  If you can carry a tune, we can teach you the rest. 

Vocal Latitudes is a non-auditioned, world music, community choir in Calgary, Alberta. 

Our director is Frank Rackow.

Our accompanist/pianist is Faye White.

 

 

Our Fall session will start on Tuesday September 13 2022. Please arrive by 7 pm for registration and to pick up your new music binder.

For the fall session (we divide the year into two parts, singing different repertoire), we’re excited about a couple of brand new songs. Vocal Latitudes (as the name implies) has always been up for the challenge of singing in many languages. (We’ve lost count of the number). This fall we’ll sing in Ladino again with a lovely arrangement of a lullaby from Flory Jagoda,  Durme Durme. And we will sing a gorgeous song from Cuba in Spanish called Sigue. As well, there will be some seasonal and Christmas repertoire, a bit of jazz, pop and South African song as well. It’s going to be a lot of fun. 
 
And the winter/spring session will highlight the work of Canadian choral composers and songwriters. 
 

While we’re waiting for the next session to begin, here’s the Vocal Latitudes Virtual Choir singing Brian Tate’s “Greater Than”.
