The JUNO-nominated Canadian Chamber Choir returns to Kingston for the first time since 2019! Enjoy a unique, all-Canadian program that seeks inspiration from water and features works by Hussein Janmohamed, Carmen Braden and Jeff Enns, alongside stirring arrangements of Canadian classics by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot. The CCC will be joined by a special guest collaborator, Cree-Dene singer and composer Sherryl Sewepagham.
The Canadian Chamber Choir (CCC) creates, celebrates, and communicates Canadian identity through choral performance and education. As Canada’s only professional choir with national representation, the ensemble is passionate about building community through choral singing in communities large and small across our country. The CCC is a 22-voice professional choral ensemble made up of singers from Newfoundland to British Columbia to the Northwest Territories, led by Dr. Julia Davids (Artistic Director) and Dr. Joel Tranquilla (Associate Conductor).
Since its founding in 1999, the organization has been an ardent champion of Canadian choral music, and the CCC almost exclusively performs repertoire by Canadian composers and arrangers. Their first two recordings, In Good Company (2010) and Sacred Reflections of Canada (2015) were widely acclaimed. The latter was nominated for a 2016 JUNO Award for Classical Album of the Year: Vocal and Choral. The CCC’s latest CD, Seasons of Life and Landscape, was released in October 2019.
