Choir & Organ: Orpheus Choir of Toronto
Poulenc Gloria and Other French Masterworks

More than 50 years ago Toronto organist and conductor John Sidgwick had a vision of a choral organization with a ‘difference', and that dream has survived the test of time. Today, the Orpheus Choir is one of the pre-eminent and most dynamic choral groups in the country. Orpheus' vision is to celebrate the power of choral music as an agent of social change and a passionate medium of artistic expression. The 60-voice choir, under newly-appointed artistic director Thomas Burton, champions the new and unusual in choral performance, commissioning and introducing new works and performing overlooked masterpieces.
