The Canadian Men’s Chorus pays tribute to veterans and current members of the military in "Honour: We Remember," the second instalment of a newly annual tradition. Uniformed in tartan regalia, the Halton Regional Police Service Pipes and Drums ensemble joins the gentlemen of the choir in a respectful concert, where a cast of thespians also re-enacts harrowing, heart-lifting stories of war. Forming the centerpiece of this sonorous dedication are the premieres of High Flight and Not Dead, two CMC-commissioned works by Canadian composer Dr. Mark Sirett. Notable for his gentle Celtic melodies and his prolific writing career, Sirett has earned multiple composing and conducting awards while working with the Cantabile Choirs in Kingston. Rounding out the program is the gentle build of Stephen Chatman’s In Flanders Fields, as well as works by Eleanor Daley, the composer behind the rising elegy In Remembrance.
Canadian Men’s Chorus
Established in late 2010, the Canadian Men’s Chorus incubated long in the imagination of artistic director Greg Rainville before it finally burst to life in musical fashion. In its short history, the ensemble has dedicated itself to a mandate to foster the choral arts in Canada with an impressive list of premiere performances of works by local artists, as well as annual Christmas and military tribute performances.
