Voices 25th Anniversary Season
Welcome to the Voices website. In the last few years, we have all endured the chaotic disruptions and tragedies caused by COVID. Voices was no exception to this unprecedented medical event. Our last concert was in December 2019. And by March 2020, things began to grind to a halt in the city, and so our preparation for our 25th anniversary season in 2020 was cancelled. Since that time, the choir has been on hold and waiting for when we could return safely to sing together again. In late October 2021, Voices partially returned to limited rehearsals, only to be locked down again in January 2022. By February, the choir resumed for the second time and provided just enough rehearsals to prepare for a performance of Holst’s The Planets in late March as guest of Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra. Also, at the end of April, Voices performed Handel’s Messiah along with the Kindred Spirits Orchestra.
This September, we will finally begin our 25th anniversary celebration, with our Annual Christmas concert “Rejoice and Sing”, which is a repeat of the choir’s very first concert all those years ago. In March 2023, our Lenten concert will be our pre-pandemic program featuring Antonio Caldara’s Stabat Mater as well as music by William Byrd in honour of the 400th anniversary of his death. To end our exciting season, the choir will stage a performance of the monumental Mass in B minor by J. S. Bach in May with orchestra and soloists. In addition to our regular season, Voices will make our Roy Thomson Hall debut in the Noon Hour Choir and Organ Recital Series on Friday, February 24, 2023.
Come and join us, as Voices returns to a season of celebration. We’re looking forward to seeing you in the audience.
“Since singing is so good a thing,
I wish all the world would learn to sing”
-William Byrd (1539/40-1623)
