First Annual MosaiK Choral Festival February 23—25 Ottawa

The MosaiK Choral Festival enriches, energizes and inspires local choral artists of all ages and levels of experience. Our mosaic of voices and song celebrates the broad range of communities in Canada and the choral art through workshops and performances in a non-competitve environment. Sponsored by Harmonia Choir of Ottawa, and École secondaire publique de la Salle, six choirs from across the city, featuring children, youth, and adults, have the unique opportunity to come together to sing in workshops and performance led this year by guest conductor and clinician Scott Leithead.  Workshops and rehearsals will culminate in an evening concert in which participants perform their own eclectic programmes then join in the MosaiK massed choir directed by Scott Leithead.

A broad range of choirs will be taking part in the festival. The children's choirs of the Cross Town Youth Chorus (ages 5-15), the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir (ages 15-23) and the high school choir from École De La Salle will join with adult choirs Musica Viva Singers, Tone Cluster, and Harmonia Choir of Ottawa for a very intergenerational mix.

The MosaiK Choral Festival will conclude with the finale concert, "African Stories" on February 25, 7:30 pm at École secondaire publique de la Salle, 501 Old St-Patrick Street.
