Awakening – June 4th, 2021
The program for the Windsor Classic Chorale’s spring concert will serve as a reflection of this period of challenge and growth – for the WCC and its community. The program will specifically address life in the period of the pandemic through a combination of timeless choral works, such as Five Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams, as well as new, innovative compositions, such as Earth Songs by Chatman.
Lest We Forget – November 6th, 2020
The Windsor Classic Chorale has a tradition of presenting a concert every November to honour the sacrifices made by our Canadian soldiers in war. Although we will not be able to have our audience hear us in person, we still want to continue this tradition. We have created a program consisting of “Armistice 1918” by Carnahan, “Requiem” by Hella Johnson, “In Remembrance” by Daley, and “After the War” originally sung in the movie Passchendaele and arranged for choir by Sirett. Along with the choral music, there will be readings and images from around Windsor-Essex commemorating our fallen soldiers.
Planning for Next Year
Windsor Choral Festival 2022
The Windsor Classic Chorale has organized, funded, and presented its annual Windsor Choral Festival since 2012. This weekend choral festival is the only one of its kind in the region and offers opportunities for singers to develop skills at home through clinical sessions hosted by choral experts from across Canada for singers of all ages and skill levels, concluding with a massed choir concert for the public. In hopeful anticipation (COVID-19 depending), the WCC is preparing the next Windsor Chorale Festival for Spring 2022 with Trinity Western University’s Dr. Joel Tranquilla as its guest clinician.
Further information, including registration, will be available at a later date.
