 Georgian Bay Concert Choir is proud to present a fabulous spring concert at 7:30pm  on Saturday, May 11, 2024  at Georgian Shores United Church in Owen Sound.  The repertoire will include a presentation of Haydn’s “Mass in Time of War” (Missa in Tempora Belli).

  The choir will be accompanied by  Shawn Grenke (Organist and accompanist for the Elmer Eisler Singers);  principal strings of the Georgian Bay Symphony; and Paul Sanvidotti (Trumpet). 

  Featured soloists are: Iris Rodrigues (soprano); Richard Cunningham (countertenor); Adam Sperry (tenor); and  Douglas Tranquada (bass-baritone). 

   In addition to Haydn’s mass, the Georgian Bay Concert choir is proud to present the premiere performance of “Wind Blown Group of Seven”.  This gorgeous piece is composed by Dorothy de Val set to poetry by Jessica Outram.   Dorothy de Val is professor emerita of Musicology at York University. Dr. de Val has taught at the Royal Academy of Music (London), Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford, and served as assistant curator of musical instruments at the Royal College of Music (London). She joined York University’s Department of Music in 1999 and served as Associate Dean in the Faculty of Fine Arts from 2004 to 2007, and as Graduate Program Director in Dance from 2009 to 2011.

  Jessica Outram is an educator; author, poet, playwright, podcast co-host, and  System Principal of Indigenous Education. A citizen of the Métis Nation of Ontario, Ms. Outram has roots in the Georgian Bay Métis Community from the verified Métis family lines of Solomon and Berger/Beaudoin. Her father’s family were settlers to the Britt area in the early 1900s. Her inspiration for “Windswept Group of Seven” comes from the painting ‘Byng Inlet’ by Tom Thomson. “That is where my parents live. It is called Britt today, but in 1914 many called it Byng Inlet North. On the back of the sketch for this painting it says “Gereaux Island Lighthouse” which is where my grandfather grew up. My great-grandfather was the lighthouse keeper at the time. It is highly likely Thomson met my family and maybe even stayed there a night.”
