Mixed-voice adult choir
Mount Royal Kantorei is proud to enter its third decade with a growing choir and strong public interest. As the adult choir of Mount Royal University Conservatory, Mount Royal Kantorei is delighted to present a varied programme of performance and collaboration. Under the leadership of Artistic Director John Morgan, the choir is adding members and has been pulling in larger audiences than ever. It is an exciting and vibrant time.
Mount Royal Kantorei is a mixed voice, auditioned choir that embraces a varied repertoire, ranging from W.A. Mozart to Eric Whitacre. The choir focuses on classical music of all periods, Canadian repertoire, and contemporary works.
Through its connection with Mount Royal University, the choir aims to strengthen the musical and vocal skills of individual members, and is unique in offering individual vocal coaching to all its members. Through workshops and sectionals, we also develop the choir as a whole.
Join Mount Royal Kantorei for their 2016/2017 season in their new home, the Bella Concert Hall as they present and collaborate in various concerts. The line-up includes:
· Amor de mi Alma: Songs of Love (music exploring the Greek concept of love);
· Sounds of the Season (the annual Christmas collaboration of MRU Conservatory);
· Mahler’s 2nd Symphony;
· a presentation of Calgary composer George Fenwick's A Splendid Line, with Grammy award-winning conductor and violinist Andres Cardenes and the Calgary Youth Orchestra; and
· Film & Fantasy: Choral Works from Gaming and Movies where music from the big screen and video games come to life with the Kantorei Academy Orchestra.
