The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown all our lives into turmoil. Our first priority has been the health of our singers, soloists, instrumentalists and conductor and you our patrons and supporters. To cancel the last concert of our 19/20 Season remains a poignant decision for the entire organization, and especially as this was to be Gabrielle Faure’s iconic and beloved ‘Requiem’.
We are all missing each other – chorister to chorister, and as a choir to you our audiences. Whether through the ticketed concert season or through our warm relationship with Seniors Communities , or through our enthusiastic welcome in schools, we love sharing the joy of singing and we value the opportunity to come together.
Our focus now is on finding ways of bringing our joy of singing to you and each other. To connect with you, wherever you are, and however you are viewing this message, we would like to share with you our recent recording of Eleanor Daley’s inspirational setting of ‘Paradise, Song of Georgian Bay’, which she wrote as an homage to her home on Georgian Bay.
These past weeks have witnessed some of the most challenging times we can remember, and the right thing for MCS Chorus to do now is take an extended intermission from performing. We will return as soon as has been deemed safe to do so, and we look forward to once again getting together with you and sharing the joy and inspiration of music with you.
Until that time, please stay home and stay safe.
Come and enjoy the brilliance and clarity of the voices of Mississauga singing together as one!
