Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, August 21, 2011 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

Winnipeg Soloists Choir perform “Song of the Forest”

This Sunday Peter Togni brings you a concert from Winnipeg with the Winnipeg Soloists Choir and the Manitoba chamber orchestra conducted by Elroy Friesen. You’ll hear them in a world premiere by Sid Robinovitch, the “Cantus Borealis: Song of the Forest”. It’s a piece that combines choir, string orchestra, narration and an electronic soundscape to evoke the spirit of Canada’s boreal forest.

You’ll also hear our first picks of the latest CD releases by Canada’s amateur choirs. We have been gathering up recent releases and are happy to celebrate this country’s high level of amateur choral singing by bringing you the best of what we have found. This week you will hear recent releases by the Edmonton Swiss Men’s Choir and the Calgary Renaissance singers and players.

All that plus an incredible performance of the entire Mass in E minor by Anton Bruckner with the Corydon Singers and the English chamber orchestra.
