The world-renowned chamber choir returns to Toronto with music by legendary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, Palestrina, and a world premiere by Estonian/Canadian composer Omar Daniel.
Led by its founder Tõnu Kaljuste, The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir (EPCC) is one of the world’s foremost vocal ensembles, famous for their interpretations of music by their beloved countryman Arvo Pärt. Their program includes Pärt favourites like Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis, Dopo la Vittoria and Kanon Pokajanen, as well as works by another great spiritualist of centuries past, Palestrina, including three selections of his Offertorium.
This evening of reverence and magic takes place in the majestic and acoustically superb setting of St. Paul’s Basilica. The program includes the world premiere of a new work by Estonian/Canadian composer Omar Daniel, based on the sonnet “Antarktos” by H. P. Lovecraft.
Returning to Toronto for the sixth time since 2000 under Soundstreams auspices, EPCC concerts usually sell out, so don’t miss your chance to experience this deeply- fulfilling international collaboration!
Venue: St. Paul's Basilica, 83 Power St
