Cantabile Chamber Singers are thrilled to have performed at the Mondial Choral Loto-Quebec Festival on Saturday June 19th, 2010 at Eglise Ste-Rose-de-Lima with great success!
We premiered five Canadian choral pieces: Ave Maria by Msgr Ronan, Still Life by Jordan Nobles (www.jordannobles.com) Litany and Da Pacem by Jeff Enns and also Exsultate Deo by Robin John King.
From their website (www.mondialchoral.org): The Loto-Québec World Choral Festival presented by Rona in Laval was born of the vision of its creative director Gregory Charles and fueled by the growing popularity of choral music, a dynamic art form and recreational pastime in Québec. Since its inception in 2005, the Loto-Québec World Choral Festival has grown by leaps and bounds. It is now a world-class national and international event, and is considered the largest gathering of choirs and vocal ensembles in North America. The festival has made Laval the Choral Music Capital of Québec and Canada, and injected new vigour into an often marginalised musical genre.
We are honoured to have been a part of such a great choral festival! Merci a tous!
