Taking the Choir to downtown spaces
The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir invites Torontonians to take a musical break during their work-day. Members of the Choir, led by Grammy-nominated conductor Noel Edison, will perform 20-minute a cappella performances in two interesting downtown spaces: Brookfield Place and the Ryerson University Student Learning Centre. These pop-up concerts are designed to engage passers-by with the marriage of architecture and choral music – the powerful sound of voices soaring into dramatic spaces. Listeners will experience music by popular contemporary choral composers Eric Whitacre and Patrick Hawes, and works by choral greats William Byrd and Charles Stanford.
