The Saskatoon Chamber Singers was founded in 1977, and for the last fifteen years has presented a concert of music and readings on Remembrance Day. The choir’s first CD Remember commemorates those who fought and died in war as well as those who have gone before us. The selections cover a wide spectrum in their approach to life and its inevitable ending: strong emotional works that can move us to tears, but at the same time raise our spirit. Most of the music showcases a vibrant contemporary choral repertoire, with over half by Canadian composers. The CD was recently featured on CBC Radio’s Choral Concert, which noted the Chamber Singers’ “wonderful blend … and a rich sound, sort of gorgeous velvet.”
