The endless dreaming of youth and innocence, the retrospective of maturity and experience. The search for identity and the familiarity of home and loved ones. That first love…and that first heartbreak. The Canadian Men’s Chorus closes out the season with music about the journey that is Growing Up.
The CMC welcomes ASLAN Boys Choir as our special guests. The ASLAN Boys Choir, like their namesake, Aslan the lion – is unique! They aspire to the highest musical standards and derive great pleasure and a lasting sense of accomplishment from their singing. Their identity is also shaped by the boys’ delightful energy, camaraderie and enthusiasm. But their programme goes much further: ASLAN stresses community values and mutual support, shaping both cultured musicians and young men. ASLAN is more than a choir, it’s a way of singing that informs all aspects of the boys’ lives.
The CMC is looking forward to making music with the boys of ASLAN!
The Canadian Men’s Chorus is a highly accomplished Toronto chamber choir, performing works from classical and other genres. Commissioning new Canadian music is a major focus of its mandate with over 30 premieres in five years, several of which have been published. Co-founded in 2010 by Greg Rainville and Arlene Jillard, CMC presents an annual concert series and has performed at Stratford Summer Music, the Gravenhurst Opera House and with the Stratford Symphony Orchestra. www.canadianmenschorus.ca
