One of the world’s greatest chamber choirs makes a rare Canadian appearance in an epic concert celebration of the human voice and spirit.
Appearing in Toronto just prior to its U.S. debut at Lincoln Center, the Latvian Radio Choir is joined by 120 choristers from universities across Canada. Featuring classics from the Russian and Latvian repertoire -Rachmaninov’s beloved Vespers and Part 1 of Schnittke’s monumental Concerto for Choir -the program also showcases two Canadian composers: John Weinzweig and Ana Sokolovic, who will be premiering a new piece.
With more than 150 singers on stage, this epic event will both exhilarate the senses and stir the soul.
