Onsale Times

Roy Thomson Hall presents

More than 50 years ago Toronto organist and conductor John Sidgwick had a vision of a choral organization with a ‘difference’, and that dream has survived the test of time. Today, the Orpheus Choir is one of the pre-eminent and most dynamic choral groups in the country. Orpheus’ vision is to celebrate the power of choral music as an agent of social change and a passionate medium of artistic expression. The 60-voice choir, under newly-appointed artistic director Thomas Burton, champions the new and unusual in choral performance, commissioning and introducing new works and performing overlooked masterpieces. Regularly working with living composers, and singing a wide range of repertoire in concerts with high production values, Orpheus has introduced audiences to many accessible works from the current generation of leading composers.

The acclaimed Orpheus Choir of Toronto, with organists Stephen Boda and Vlad Soloviev, present an exciting mix of French, Canadian and Haitian masterworks, featuring movements from Poulenc’s celebrated Gloria.
