I wish to welcome you and your treble choir singers to Toronto in early July 2019 – the week in which Canada Day and Independence Day in the US are both celebrated.
I was delighted when Henry Leck approached me to Co-Conduct this children’s choir festival. I value these kinds of collaborations very much between singers, with different directors/conductors and across many cultures. This is one of the reasons I was attracted to jointly lead this festival.
Toronto is my adopted city and, like me, you will enjoy the fine cultural offerings as well as the sightseeing and excellent range of venues when you come to visit. We have selected our preferred festival gala concert venue and we will share that news with you soon as well. Canadian choirs are looking forward to hosting our choral friends from the United States and we anticipate participation from other parts of the world.
We know the safety and comfort of your singers is the highest priority and I can see that the KI team values this in the same way that Henry and I do.
Please join us with your singers and let us combine our voices, our talent and our passion to make this an experience none of us will forget!
