Kokopelli Choir Association presents Where Waters Meet on Friday, October 18th at 7:30pm at McDougall United Church (10025 101 St NW).
Kokopelli Choirs is thrilled to present the Canadian Chamber Choir in concert alongside Òran, and featuring the inaugural performance of our newest ensemble: ChandraTala, an upper-voice choir under the direction of Laura Hawley. The Canadian Chamber Choir will present the Alberta premiere of a new work entitled Where Waters Meet by Carmen Braden. This is a long-term collaboration with Canadian indigenous artists and is part of the CCC's journey, both educating the CCC members themselves and audiences, and working to be more representative of our country.
About the Canadian Chamber Choir:
It began as an unlikely dream nurtured by alumni of the 1999 National Youth Choir, and became a phenomenon that grew out of passion and determination. A decade and a half later, the Juno-nominated Canadian Chamber Choir/Chœur de chambre du Canada (CCC) has matured into an artistic force whose mandate to bring new and existing Canadian choral music to every corner of Canada has allowed singers, conductors, audiences, and composers to come together in celebration of the depth of this country’s choral heritage. Under the artistic direction of renowned conductor and music educator Julia Davids, the CCC has pursued artistic excellence in every performance while always remaining true to its core mission: building community through choral singing.
The CCC offers some of Canada’s finest choral singers a professional choral environment in which to nurture their gifts, and the singers in turn give of their talents to the communities in which they perform. Each CCC tour features workshops for local singers and conductors of all ages and stages, as well as performances of diverse music by Canadian composers both established and emerging. Through these interactions, the CCC has inspired, nurtured, and mentored thousands of choral enthusiasts while working tirelessly to champion the vast wealth of choral music created in Canada. The power of this unique vision has allowed the CCC to truly become Canada’s coast-to-coast chamber choir.
