Rutter Magnificat and Carols by Dan Forrest

Sunday December 12, 2021, 7:30 pm – Kingston Road United Church

Join us for a performance of holiday carols, including five carols artfully arranged by American choral composer Dan Forrest, followed by a performance of John Rutter’s Magnificat, complete with chamber orchestra and soprano Leanne Kaufmann.

Houdy – La Messe Québécoise and other Canadiana

Sunday February 27 2022, afternoon – Beach United Church

Once again Toronto Beach Chorale will be performing Pieric Houdy’s La Messe Québécoise with special guest musicians (TBD but almost certainly involving a fiddler and a percussionist!). For anyone who hasn’t yet heard La Messe Québécoise it’s an essential part of the Canadian choral canon. The music and French language lyrics alternate between playful and wild, prayful and irreverent. The remainder of the program is still in planning but will likely feature SATB arrangements of Canadian folk songs and arrangements by Canadian composers such as Eleanor Daley.

Lauridsen Lux Aeterna and Fauré Requiem

Sunday April 24, 2022, afternoon – St Anne’s Anglican Church

We had started rehearsing the pieces in this concert during our 2019-2020 year but as the year was cut short just after our Carmina Burana concert in March 2020 we did not have the chance to perform these pieces.
