Presented By Guelph Chamber Choir:
The Guelph Chamber Choir and four guest choirs celebrate Ontario’s 150th anniversary with a gala concert featuring 240 singers and internationally acclaimed Guelph folk singer James Gordon. These singers of all ages give voice to Canada’s and Ontario’s history, culture and spirit in this collaborative concert. Choirs partnering with the GCC include the Guelph Community Singers, the Guelph Youth Singers, the Rainbow Chorus of Waterloo-Wellington, and the University of Guelph Choirs. Each choir will perform individually, and five choirs will sing together as a massed choir. As well, James Gordon and the choirs, together with a maximum of 785 audience members, will sing songs that celebrate our wonderful province and our country with its diverse peoples.
Podium Talk titled “Guelph in 1867”: Dr. Gil Stelter, retired University of Guelph professor, presents a fascinating image of Guelph in 1867 through slides, history and stories. Talk begins on the Main Stage at 6:30 pm.
