£tiM~s~g~-g~lffif/,s off drastically in January, though there are some interesting events, throughout the month, including the Ve~nivka Choir's celebration of Ukrainian Christmas on January 8th. By the beginning of February the New Year has hit stride. February 4th has already caught my eye-a whopping double-booking with the Tafelmusik Choir singing all of Bach's motets at the Glenn Gould.Studio at the very same time as one of the world's great choirs-;the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, under the direction ofTonu Kalijustesing a pile ofPru-t at St. Patrick's. Two nights later, February 6, the Mississauga Choral Society Tbe Saint Anorew chorale ' Sing Some Things About Mary · Magnificat ' continues its 25th Anniversary Season with 20th Century Visions: works by Durufle, Bernstein, Passmore and Holman. The choir, under the direction of founder Chrys Bentley, first gathered together in a portable classroom at Erindale College in the early 1970's and has grown into a first class choral ensemble. Bentley runs a tight ship, has high standards and an all-toorare purist's view of the great choral works. He takes the time to rehearse meticulously and has built a strong relationship with Toronto Symphony violinist Leslie Knowles, who heads up the Sinfony Players, the accompanying orchestra for all of the MCS's concerts. Later in the year they will present a special performance of Bach's Mass in B Minor. All of the MCS's concerts take place in the wonderful Hammerson Hall at the Mississauga Living Arts Centre. On behalf of Choirs Ontario, I would like to wish the Mississauga Choral Society all the very best in their anniversary season. )l{{qfie 1(jng's reJoices David J.
