The Windsor Choral Festival is an annual event that brings together choral singers from across Windsor-Essex Region to share their love of singing with one another. The festival provides choral clinics for ongoing vocal training and education free of charge, encouraging community through collaborative singing. With an explicit mandate to promote Canadian choral music, the festival features a Canadian work every year as a massed choir piece in a grand finale concert.
Windsor Choral Festival 2023 will occur from January 11-14, with clinician Dr. Joel Tranquilla of Trinity Western University. Dr. Joel Tranquilla is previous Artistic Director of Windsor Classic Chorale, Chorusmaster of Windsor Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and Director of Choirs at the University of Windsor. He also founded the Windsor Choral Festival in 2011.
The grand finale Windsor Choral Festival concert will feature choral groups from across Windsor-Essex singing repertoire selected by their music directors. The choirs will join voices for a massed choral finale of a newly commissioned choral work by Canadian composer, Sarah Quartel. Experience this showcase on Saturday, January 14th (7:30pm), at the Capitol Theatre Windsor. Admission is by donation. Downloadable poster below.
