The 2016- 2017 season of Pro Coro Canada is well underway, and Michael Zaugg recently returned from Scotland where he was Artist-in-Residence at the Universtiy of Aberdeen. With the Chamber Choir of the University, he premiered Thomas LaVoy’s major work ‘Endless’. 

Upcoming performances will feature much contempoary music. Join Pro Coro Canada on Good Friday for  'Passio' by Estonian Arvo Pärt. And a couple weeks later, the ensemble ConSept will perform the rarely heard ’ Stimmung’ by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Once again, Michael will be on tour with the male choir, combining singers from Canada, the US and Ukrain, to perform Fr. Sembrat’s Resurrection Liturgy.

 In high anticipation is also the co-commission with JAM in the U.K., featuring Canadian Stuart Beatch and British Tom Harrold, and commemorating the Battle of Vimy Ridge. 

Choral Canada’s quarterly magazine Anacrusis features a series of articles on the professional choirs in Canada. Click here for an excerpt of the edition about Pro Coro Canada. If you ever wondered what kind of repertoire Mr. Zaugg likes and performs, click here to find a collection of works.
