One of the world’s greatest chamber choirs, the 26-member Latvian Radio Choir, makes a rare Toronto appearance. En route to Lincoln Center under conductor Kaspars Putnins, the choir will perform Russian and Latvian classics including the beloved Rachmaninov Vespers and Schnittke’s monumental choral concerto. The Latvians will be joined by 120 choristers from Soundstreams University Voices, an ensemble comprised of the best university choirs from across Canada. Other program highlights include a salute to Remembrance Day, a premiere by Canada’s Ana Sokolovic, and John Weinzweig’s hilarious Hockey Night in Canada.
