The choir recently completed a tour of Northern Ontariowith several performances of the ground-breaking Cree operaPimooteewin, by Tomson Highway and Melissa Hui.The choir also has an impressive record of choral-educationalinitiatives. For over a decade, Jessie helped to administer theensemble’s position as the professional Choir-In-Residence at theUniversity of Toronto’s Faculty of Music, through the Elmer IselerChair in Conducting. The current success of the Get Music! projectthat sponsors numerous symposia and workshops linking youth andthe industry of sound recording is another example of their visionaryarts education. Over the years the choir has engaged countless youngCanadian vocal professionals, and launched many successful vocalcareers.Jessie’s passionate advocacy for choral music, and profoundcommitment to the Elmer Iseler Singers, continues to be a source ofinspiration to Canada’s choral community. Congratulations, Jessie!The Elmer Iseler Singers have a concert on October 4: aprogramme called “Gibbons to Gospel,” with the Nathaniel DettChorale, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. These twoprofessional groups are off to an early start; for amateur choirs, itusually takes a little longer to get going. But as the fall progresses,the hard work and preparations of September will bear fruit, asmany other Ontario choirs present their season-opening concerts. Itwon’t be long before voices in chorus are heard, in a wide variety ofmusical styles, throughout the province.KaffeemusikRenaissance Soul MusicMedieval ScandinavianChristmas2009/2010CONCERT SEASONMark Vuorinen Music DirectorDivine Light from the NorthMembra Jesu NostriKaffeemusikBach and the GermanMotet 24 WWW.THEWHOLENOTE.COM September 1 - October 7, 2009
