DaCapo Chamber Choir 2022The DaCapo Chamber Choir was founded in 1998 in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario under the direction of Leonard Enns. In November 2023, the choir celebrates 25 years of “giving ideas voice.” The mission of the choir is to promote the best of contemporary choral music through public performance and recordings, including the intentional championing of music of Canadian and local composers. The choir’s national NewWorks choral competition, which held its final season last year, was critical in establishing a vibrant and vital presence for recent and emerging Canadian choral music. DaCapo will continue to profile and support Canadian composers through premieres and commissioning.

The choir has released three CDs: NewWorks (2019); the award-winning ShadowLand (winner of the 2010 ACCC’s National Choral Recording of the Year award, including the Juno-nominated Nocturne by Leonard Enns); and Still (2004).

25th anniversary season:

  • November 11 and 12, 2023 - “My Spirit Sang All Day,” featuring the NewWorks competition winner Snow by Benjamin Bolden
  • April 20 and 21, 2024 - “Reflections,” featuring pianist Catherine Robertson
