CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, July 1st, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Canada Day on Choral Concert: Festival 500 - Sharing the Voices!

This Sunday Peter Togni celebrates Canada Day with a special encore presentation of one of our favourite concert broadcasts from this past year – a celebration of Festival 500 from St. John’s Newfoundland, one of Canada’s most treasured choral festivals.

Singing in Newfoundland and Labrador has been a way of celebrating, mourning, and telling their community's stories for over 500 years. That community spirit is still at the heart of Festival 500, as St John’s now reaches out beyond its shores to bring in choirs from across Canada and around the world, to celebrate the power of song.

We’ll hear a broadcast of the highlights from one year ago this July, recorded at the Arts and Culture Centre and Gower Street United Church in St. John's.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
