March 29th Pre-Concert Talk by Dr. Allen Jorgenson

If you missed the pre-concert talk on March 29th with Dr. Allen Jorgenson on Christianity, antisemitism, and the St. John Passion, HERE is a recording of it.

Our thanks to Dr. Jorgenson for agreeing to share it.

Important context for our performance of St. John Passion

As we prepared to perform Bach’s St. John Passion over the past few weeks, we thought it important to offer resources that provide context into this beautiful and unsettling work. Please click HERE to learn more.

A message from the Grand Philharmonic Choir

We at the Grand Philharmonic Choir want to express our sadness, and our solidarity, for the musicians who are dealing with the bankruptcy of the former Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and cancellation of their upcoming season.The choir’s own 2023-24 season will continue as planned, starting with Mozart’s Requiem on Saturday October 21st at Centre In The Square, accompanied by symphony orchestra. To accompany the choir, we will be engaging the individual Musicians of the KWSymphony, following the practices set out by the Canadian Federation of Musicians. For our audience members, this means that your experience will be the same as other Philharmonic Choir concerts in other years: a deeply moving evening with some of the most beautiful music ever written.Thank you for supporting the Grand Philharmonic Choir and the Musicians of the KWSymphony. We need music now, more than ever.

Wayne Buck – Audience member

Magnificent! Spell-binding!

“Words alone cannot convey the experience of sitting in the audience with the panorama of the orchestra and choirs spread out before us; the sound that emanated from the front and completely filled the space; the sound of the children's voices floating above in their parts. So glad we were there. Well done.”
