Origins + Exploration: this collaborative performance with the University of Alberta Madrigal Singers (Timothy Shantz, conductor) and Concert Choir (Adam Robertson, conductor) connects us with the past and future of our art form.

Jordan Van Biert and many Chronos singers are alumni of these influential ensembles. Formed in the early 1970s, these U of A Department of Music ensembles have had a profound effect on the artistic life of Edmonton, as a part of the history that has built a vibrant choral community in this northern city. Through this collaboration, Chronos engages with the next generation of skilled and passionate choral singers.

The program will feature music of Mendelssohn and Rheinberger, Esenvalds and Whitacre, and Canadian composers including Chronos composer-in-residence Stuart Beatch, Sherryl Sewepagaham, Cy Giacomin, and Katerina Gimon.
