Event Details

This celebration of singing features all of Chor Leoni’s programs and choirs in an uplifting and hope-filled celebration of the human voice. Both events anchor a dynamic week of mentorship, rehearsals, and performances for Chor Leoni, The Leonids, and Chor Leoni’s MYVoice and Emerging Choral Artist youth programs. The Big Roar festival’s renaming coincides with an organizational change, as Chor Leoni has officially dropped the gendered words “Men’s Choir” from its name.

The choral summit, hosted by Chor Leoni, promises a week filled with mentorship, workshops, and rehearsals for over 200 participants and provides audiences with an opportunity to experience the best choral music of today and witness the art form’s hope for tomorrow. The Big Roar is the culmination of a rich week of music and connection, where singers from The Leonids, Chor Leoni, MYVoice, Prélude youth choirs, and the Emerging Choral Artists unite to form Canada’s largest lower voice choir for a spectacular one-night-only performance. The concert will feature a wide variety of songs, from an arrangement of a Visayan lullaby and choral classics such as ‘We Rise Again’, to the world premiere of new pieces by Canadian composers Laura Hawley and Chris Sivak.
