The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir’s annual Choral Conductors’ Symposium brings together five emerging conductors for a week of intense master classes and workshops with internationally-acclaimed conductor Noel Edison, working with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the Elora Festival Singers. The Symposium concludes with a public concert on February 1, 2014 at 3 pm that will be webcast live from Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in Toronto.
This online concert is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a range of great choral music, including works by Canadian composers Corlis, Raminsh and Willan, and excerpts from classical masterworks: Dona nobis pacem from Bach’s B Minor Mass; Zigeunerlieder by Brahms; The Lord is Great from Haydn’s The Creation; and Hear my prayer, O Lord by Purcell. The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the Elora Festival Singers will perform under the direction of the five Symposium conductors.
