Summer Choral Program

Join us in beautiful Victoria, B.C. from July 20-27 for our in person Summer Choral Program with choral legend HOWARD DYCK!

Our main work will be the stunning Mozart Requiem (Robert Levin completion), conducted by Howard Dyck, and featuring soloists Karoline Podolak, Susan Platts, Benjamin Butterfield, and Gary Relyea, and organist Mark MacDonald. Our final performance will take place at historic Christ Church Cathedral.

Our program will also feature music by Healy Willan, Felix Mendelssohn, an early choral work by Arnold Schoenberg, and pieces by Kathleen Allan, Andrew Balfour, and our feature composer, Stephanie Martin.
