TMC Choral Conductors’ Symposium Concert
Missed the concert? You can still enjoy it on Livestream.
This annual concert brings together a pot pourri of classical and contemporary choral music, two great choirs, and five conductors. It is the culmination of the TMC’s annual Choral Conductors’ Symposium where five emerging conductors from across North America spend an intensive week of workshops and rehearsals with Artistic Director Noel Edison. Enjoy the results of their work at this FREE community concert. (Suggested donation: $10. Donations support the Symposium and concert, part of the TMC’s outreach programming.)
This concert is a great opportunity to hear the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the Elora Festival Singers perform diverse works from the choral repertoire, including excerpts from large-scale works like Handel’s Solomon, Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Orff’s Carmina Burana, and chamber works by composers including Britten, Pärt and Corlis.
The concert will also include the premiere of winning composition from the TMC’s inaugural Choral Composition Competition: Psalm 100 by Stuart Beatch, the winner of the Debbie Fleming Prize for Choral Composition.
