Voice at Western

Western’s largest choir, Chorale, is a mixed choir comprised of voice majors, instrumental majors, and non-music majors. Their repertoire spans from classic choral literature to contemporary work and world music.

To date, Chorale has premiered numerous new Canadian compositions and arrangements.

Highlights from past seasons include performances with renowned performing artists, Rajaton (Finland), “The Road to Ghana” with The Baobab Youth Performers (Ottawa) and world music specialists Allison Girvan and Gary Diggins.

Whenever possible, Chorale collaborates with other community arts organizations in performance. Recent projects include The Messiah with the London Community Orchestra at the Petrolia Playhouse Theatre, and The Kaleid Choral Festival, 2016. The choir also joins forces with Don Wright Faculty of Music choirs and faculty to present major works for choir and orchestra/instrumental ensemble such as Carmina Burana, the Brahms Requiem and the Rutter Gloria.
