As the pandemic calls for us to work together online instead of in person, we’re getting creative with an exciting new project!

The Grand Philharmonic Choir is leading a cross-Canada project involving choirs in Edmonton (Richard Eaton Singers); Halifax (Symphony Nova Scotia Chorus and Camerata Singers); and the Montreal area (Société chorale de Saint-Lambert).

We will all work together, connecting online, to record a beautiful new work that speaks of our experience in this pandemic.  Take This Thread is written for choir, piano and violin by Vancouver composer Katerina Gimon, with text by Montreal poet Lauren Peat.

Each singer records his or her voice individually, and a recording engineer brings it all together.

It will become a video that all can experience. We hope you will join us when it receives its world premiere in the spring!
