CANTALA WOMEN’S CHOIR
Rebecca was a member of the award-winning Cantala Women’s Choir from 2009 to 2023, directed by Nancy Singla. Here are Joanne Schwindt’s photos of the choir’s recent Roy Thomson Hall debut: Cantala at Roy Thomson Hall
Rebecca enjoys singing Gregorian chant and early music motets. She was a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church schola in west Toronto directed by Peter Bishop. As a member of Trio Cordium Voices she mounted a sold-out celebration of the music of Hildegard von Bingen in 2019.
“Here’s a recording that almost slid past our eyes until hearing the marvelous young singer in live performance. Enkin is note for note perfect in diction and pitch. Choice of material suits her well as does the often quirky – always inventive arrangements by Frank Falco. The recording is stacked with the finest Toronto musicians who all deliver a memorable session.” — The Jazz Report Magazine
