38th EMSB Chorale Season Begins
The EMSB Chorale’s 38th season was off to an exciting start as a group of 21 senior choristers sang in the world premiere of Matthias Maute’s Nonopera RR14 on September 13 at the Chapelle historique du Bon Pasteur with Ensemble Caprice, conducted by Maestro Maute. Regular season rehearsals started on September 9, and the Chorale has welcomed 29 new choristers so far, bringing the numbers up to 96. The last opportunity to audition for the chorale this fall is at the Saturday, September 30 rehearsal. Upcoming events include a performance of Carmina Burana (Senior Chorale) with the McGill Schulich School of Music choirs on October 25 at Pollack Hall, the annual fall camps, the chorale’s much-anticipated Holiday Concert on December 9 and an invitation to sing at the Montreal West Christmas Dinner for the town’s senior citizens on December 15.
