Mozart and More
Saturday, May 11, 2019, 7:30 p.m.
Dominion-Chalmers United Church, 355 Cooper St, Ottawa
The centrepiece of our May concert will be Mozart’s Requiem, one of the best-loved works in the choral repertoire. The choir will be accompanied by an orchestra and joined by four soloists, all known to Ottawa audiences: Joan Fearnley (soprano), Carole Portelance (alto), David MacAdam (tenor) and Mark Wilkinson (bass/baritone). Gabriel Paul, a student at Carleton University, will be featured on tenor saxophone in the beautiful Evening Prayer by Ola Gjeilo. The choir will also perform works by Canadian composers Eleanor Daley, Jeff Enns and Laura Hawley, among others.
The Canadian Centennial Choir, an amateur community concert choir of approximately 70 voices, was founded in 1967 to celebrate the centenary of Canadian Confederation. The Choir performs secular and sacred music with a particular focus on new and commissioned works composed or arranged by Canadians.
Our annual three-concert series attracts a large and varied audience, and features guest artists from the local community who share our commitment to musical excellence. Under the dynamic leadership of its Music Director, Marg Stubington, the Choir is pleased to present its 51st season.
Tickets may be purchased for individual concerts, but a season subscription will save you up to 25% off single-ticket prices.
The choir relies on its fundraising efforts to help support the activities of the choir. The bulk of the fundraising occurs during two annual activities: sales of coffee and sales of frozen berries.
Our "Friends of the Choir" program gratefully accepts both financial donations and "in kind" donations. A tax receipt will be issued for all donations. Click below for details.
