The 24-voice DaCapo Chamber Choir was founded in 1998 in Kitchener-Waterloo under the direction of Leonard Enns. The mission of the choir is to identify, study, rehearse and present outstanding choral chamber works of the past 100 years and to champion music of Canadian and local composers. Although there is still much uncertainty ahead, we are moving forward with a (tentative) 2021/22 concert season.
In November, we will complete the “Road to Refuge”, and introduce the year's environmental theme. The concert will begin with several reflective works, as we acknowledge ongoing global challenges and remember the personal and general losses of the past two years. In March, the focus will be on nature - particularly on our avian friends. In May, we will cap off the environmental theme with a new commission by Nicholas Ryan Kelly. Guest artists include Catherine Robertson, Miriam Stewart Kroeker, and Jennifer Enns Modolo.
During our "hiatus," we released archival concert recordings and "Garage Choir" recordings on our YouTube channel. And our NewWorks CD is available to stream on all major platforms (read the review of this CD in the April 2019 issue of The WholeNote.) Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @DaCapoChoir!
