Toronto Mendelssohn Choirs kicks off 120th season with Haydn, Mozart

Christina Strynatka, The Examiner: 4 stars. Well, that was quite some start to the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir's 120th season! After a much too long wait, the 129-strong choir started its 2014/2015 season on October 15 at the wonderfully acoustic Koerner Hall, an intimate stage space where there's not one bad seat and everything sounds just as lovely no matter where you are. It was a bit of a simple program, with Haydn's "Lord Nelson Mass" and Mozart's "Requiem" on the playlist, with four soloists: Toronto Mendelssohn Choir soprano Lesley Bouza, and guests mezzo-soprano Anita Krause, tenor Charles Davidson and bass-baritone Sean Watson.
