CHORAL CONCERT with host Nick HalleyThe best choral music from across Canada and around the world
SUNDAY May 18th, 2014 9:05 - 10:00 am, (9:35 - 10:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2
This is the weekend of the biannual Podium choral festival, where singers of various stripes from across North America pour into a town and flood it with song. This year the festival is in Halifax and it is happening throughout this weekend.
There are many hundreds of singers gathered in Halifax right now. They have been living, loving and celebrating Canadian amateur choral making and are going to keep doing it for 5 days straight. They are going figure out ways to sing even more over the years ahead, and then they are going to sing again, and finally at the end of all this they will leave completely exhausted but deliriously happy.
I can’t think of a better way to improve the quality of our lives, and build something inside ourselves that wasn’t there before - than to do something like that.
So this Sunday on Choral Concert Nick Halley will bring you a slate of choirs that are part of this year’s Podium, everyone from Halifax’s Camerata Singers to the brand new Winnipeg based group Antiphony.
Choral Concert, the “Podium” edition. Sunday, May 18th, 2014, 9:05 - 10:00 a.m. (9:35 - 10:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2.
