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 & present outstanding choral chamber works of the past 100 years and to champion music of Canadian and local composers. In November 2018, the choir released its 3rd CD, NewWorks, with selections received through the first 10 years of its national choral composition competition.
The 20/21 season is “Earth As Home,” which emerges from the three-year “Road to Refuge” series that DaCapo just completed, related to ideas of home (“Displacement,” “Resettlement,” “Renewal” ). The 20/21 theme will expand “home” to the global and celestial home, with a focus on environmental care and repair. Guests: James Mason, Jan Overduin, Catherine Robertson, Jennifer Enns Modolo.
