18 2006•2007 SEASON AUDITIONS Under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Robert Cooper, Orpheus is moving forward! I'm enjoying the choir enormously, and finding it a learning experience. I like Bob's demanding, high standards. Nancy Ackerman, choir member In the short time since Robert Cooper became its conductor, the Orpheus Choir of Toronto has reinvented itself as one of the most innovative programmers of large-scale choral works in the city .... a choir to take another look at. Larry Beckwith, WholeNote Magazine Expand your repertoire with new music, enjoy familiar pieces in a fresh light, and be challenged by the unusual. JOIN THE ORPHEUS CHOIR, a vibrant organization in its 42nd year, and experience a rewarding time with a warm and welcoming group of singers. NOW AUDITIONING IN ALL VOICE PARTS. PLEASE CALL 416 530-4428 FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO BOOK AN AUDITION Orpheus Choir of Toronto: Expect something different Back to Ad Index CHORAL Scene by Larry Beckwith I have to admit to feeling a little melancholy at the fact that Toronto has no major choral festivals happening this month, especially since Lawrence Cherney (and Nicholas Goldschmidt before him) have given us exciting June choral events in past years. "An annual June Toronto Choral Festival, featuring international, national and local choirs": a goal to pursue. There are still many interesting choir concerts in the city this month, including more anniversary celebrations. I invite you to peruse the listings and get out and support our local warblers! I will return next month with an overview of summer festival activities across the province and choral events in town. canary corrections "Not a sparrow falls" the Good Book says but our May "Choral Canary Pages" let a few slip. WholeNote regrets the error. Coro San Marco Founded in 1995 by artistic director Daniel Colla, the choir's 50 members share a love for folk, classical and operatic music, and participate in many concerts and festivals, averaging ten concerts a year. They have performed at Roy Thomson Hall and the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, founded the annual multicultural choral festival Singing Together, and have performed with the Nova Amadeus Orchestra from Rome. With the Esprit Alliance Orchestra they premiered Albinoni' s Magnificat and G. Posocco's Ave Maria. Coro San Marco has two recordings: Va' pensiero I Longing Spirit, and songs of the Italian migration: Addia Patria Mia I Farewell My Homeland. colladaniel@hotmail.com www. corosanmarco. com Renaissance Singers The Renaissance Singers were founded by Raymond S. J. Daniels in 1972. The choir's early reputation was based on its polished performances of renaissance a cappella literature. Today, the choir sings music from the masters of all centuries. The Renaissance Singers have also commissioned and premiered the works of leading Canadian composers. The choir has four recordings to its credit, and has performed on four tours of England. Under the musical direction of Richard Cunningham, the choir looks forward to its 33rd season. kathybob@golden.net Kathy Lees: 519-725-4397 Toronto Children's Chorus Jean Ashworth Bartle, C.M., O.Ont., Founder/Music Director The Toronto Children's Chorus, now entering its 28th season, is widely recognized as one of the world's leading children's choirs, offering unique musical, educational, and social experiences for children between the ages of 7 and 15 .
