Event Details

Juno-nominated Chor Leoni joins Montreal’s award-winning La Nef for The Return Voyage, a rousing night of nautical songs.

The program encapsulates stories of those lives led abroad in the 18th and 19th centuries, embodying the thrill of dangerous adventure, longing for loved ones at home, and the joys of seeing the world. The concert features arrangements from renowned Shantyman Seán Dagher, whose rich, full-throated voice leads the seven members of La Nef alongside more than 60 voices of Choir Leoni on a rollicking voyage of high-seas harmonies.
