This spring we will be learning Canadian Folk songs. I was inspired recently by the work titled Woodsmoke and Oranges (Tamblyn). Afterwards, I immediately knew it was time to program a folk themed concert. (Psst…. For those that know me, don’t be surprised to also anticipate other pieces that are not Canadian folk as well). Photo Credit: Joanne Schwindt You know those annoying flies we battle in the summer while camping? Well, there is a song about it! And it’s fun. It is called “Black Fly”. We will also sing about all the gorgeous Canadian rivers in a piece titled “All the Little Rivers in C ..read more

Do you ever think about death? I do. It is not a morbid cognitive task for me. It is born out of a fascination for it, nothing else. Actually, it is one of my favourite things to ponder and philosophize about. Death was an underlying theme at the concert this past December 2nd. It was a powerful night of wonder. Thank you to Asal Iranmehr, Piano, and Sarah Steeves, Cello, who performed with us at the concert during Sarah Quartel’s Snow Angel. Both of whom, with the glorious work of the singers, gave such a meaningful, heartfelt performance. For myself, the highlight of this work is in movement ..read more

Have you noticed that our name has changed over the years? Ever wonder why? Read on… Cantala and many of the silly people that make it up.

In 2023 it is time to be a gender neutral space and inclusivity is one focus of our organizations mission. We strive to be a special, welcoming, inclusive choral creating place. Photo Credit: A.

Have you ever swirled around in a big ball gown on a concert stage that is all yours? We did this past May at Roy Thomson Hall. We can report back that it is a fantastic experience and highly recommend it.
