Three top Canadian composers -
Three brilliant new compositions

Performances can be attended in person at St. Andrew’s United Church, HalifaxShow a map or live streamed.

Why VERITAS?

The Aeolian Singers are celebrating our 45th season doing what we love most: championing the voices of Canadian women in music. Our ambitious VERITAS program will be split across three different concerts held on November 14, 29, and December 13. Each concert will feature a unique world premiere by one of three Canadian female composers commissioned by the choir. To make this event even more special, every performance will also include a collaborative demonstration led by its corresponding composer, giving audience members the chance to develop a deeper connection to this creative choral experience. In addition to each world premiere, the choir will also perform past program favourites and festive seasonal selections.

Our composers will also be hosting a virtual composer workshop for arts community professionals, emerging composers and interested students on November 15.
