Banff Center for Arts and Creativity workshop intensive where we get to work with award-winning, international composition and conductor faculty, and work with ensemble-in-residence Pro Coro Canada. The weekend aims to create exchanges between a circle of creators, leaders, and performers active in the choral music milieu. The workshop also aims to support and bring visibility to the Canadian choral community, and encourage collaboration within the Canadian network. Choirs will explore new approaches to the performance of choral music, work on pre-existing repertoire, explore new works, and further refine their craft through coaching and lectures. We are very excited to have been offered this opportunity.

The concert is free to the public. Cantala is thrilled to be invited to participate in this series and to perform with the esteemed organist David Simon in the recital.
