Step inside, away from the rain or snow, and gather around the warmth of Chor Leoni’s Yuletide Fires for a West Coast-inspired programme of seasonal beauty. Ancient Haida chant, newly composed carols and arrangements by BC composers Jonathan Quick, Stephen Smith, Larry Nickel and Don Macdonald will wrap you in light during this darkest time of the year and send you home refreshed for the upcoming holiday festivities.

About the Choir

A rich full-bodied sound, innovative programming, technical precision, meticulous intonation, and versatility coupled with an ever-present musical curiosity and commitment to the creation of new Canadian choral works are qualities that have catapulted Chor Leoni to national and international fame since its founding by Diane Loomer C.M. in 1992.  Whether it be a sombre moment of reflection during a Remembrance Day performance or a joyful turn of comedic phrasing at a Summer Solstice show, Chor Leoni is renowned for reaching across the footlights and transforming the performance from ‘concert’ to ‘conversation.’ The lions live up to their name as they fearlessly move between musical genres, always aiming to communicate, engage, and entertain. Engendering tears of emotion, peals of laughter, and gasps of awe from their audiences, Chor Leoni prides itself on its ability to perform in many languages and styles, always sung with fresh energy and poise.
