Workshop and concert

On Saturday, February 14, 2015, the Montreal Choral Institute will host the acclaimed Canadian Chamber Choir and its artistic director, Dr. Julia Davids. The choir will do a workshop in the afternoon with two Montreal-area vocal ensembles and other selected choristers, then it will perform recent works by Canadian composers in the gala concert which will take place in the evening. The two Montreal ensembles will have their own spotlight within the concert to showcase their original sound and talent, and the concert will end with all participating choristers forming a massed choir to sing works by Jeff Enns, Rupert Lang, Robert Ingari,  and Bruce Sled.
