Cantabile Women Advance to Next Round in Choral Competition

The Cantabile Women’s Chorus of Kingston under the direction of Dr. Mark Sirett has advanced to the National Quarter-Semi Finals of the CBC National Radio Choral Competition for Amateur Choirs. This is the first time that the forty-voice ensemble, one of seven different choirs in the Cantabile organization, has entered this prestigious National Competition which was founded in 1974. They were one of several choirs chosen out of over fifty choirs that entered the competition from across Ontario.

CHORAL 2008 is Canada’s largest and longest running choral competition. The biennial competition was created to foster the continuing development of amateur choral singing in Canada and to provide a national stage for the very best of Canadian choirs and choral performances across the land. The next stage of the competition will take place in Montreal in early March when a national Jury will convene to adjudicate all the entries from across Canada.
