The Ottawa Choral Society - Grand Music, Grand Passion, a Grand Tradition
Since its inaugural concert in 1941, the Ottawa Choral Society has evolved into one of Canada's most prominent symphonic choruses. The Society nurtures the choral arts in the National Capital Region, providing a performance platform for talented graduates of the city's youth choirs and experienced adult choristers.
The choir's repertoire ranges from the complex polyphony of the Baroque and Renaissance to the jazz-influenced rhythms and cluster chords of contemporary composers. The Society supports the development of Canadian talent through a commissioning program, choral bursaries, and its New Discoveries Auditions for Young Artists.
This holiday season, experience the ultimate heavenly host. For fifty years, the King’s Singers at Christmas have been “as comforting as a favourite sweater on a cold winter’s night, while being challenging and inventive” (Ottawa Citizen). In this very special programme, this legendary vocal sextet joins forces with Maestro Jean-Sébastien Vallée and the Ottawa Choral Society for a festive celebration of the Singers’ golden yuletide.
