Chor Leoni Teams up with Elektra Women's Choir for Canadian Voices Concert

Elektra Women's Choir, Morna Edmundson, Artistic Director and Chor Leoni Men's Choir, Diane Loomer, C.M., Artistic Director, sing the musical richness of Canada! From Leonard Cohen to Stephen Smith, Joni Mitchell to Jocelyn Morlock, the richness of Canada's musical voice is unparalleled. Chor Leoni and Elektra Women's Choir join forces to celebrate and explore this musical gold mine in Canadian Voices. The programme includes an astonishing eleven premieres, including new works by Jocelyn Morlock, Stephen Smith, and Mark Sirett, as well as new arrangements by Kate Polsky, Ron Smail, and Ken Cormier. Each choir will present solo sets before combining to premiere Kristopher Fulton's Orpheus, a work co-commissioned by Elektra and Chor Leoni.
Canadian Voices offers the listener an opportunity to hear two of Canada's finest choirs perform alone and together in a coast-to-coast-to coast exploration of Canadian music ranging from avant garde to folk as Elektra and Chor Leoni proudly wave the maple leaf.

Performances will be on Saturday, April 10 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 11 at 3 pm, at Ryerson United Church, 2195 W45th Ave, Vancouver BC.
