Frontenac Women’s Chorus is accepting new members

Let’s sing!  The Frontenac Women’s Chorus is a vibrant group of women of all ages who love to sing, love to be together, and love to share their music with their local communities.

Repertoire ranges from folk to classical to contemporary choral works.  The choir is limited to 35 members but we are always eager to welcome new singers.

La Vie En Rose

Featuring the delightfully charming guest artist duo, French Squeeze (Jacques Arsenault and Marjorie Maltais) performing with Cantabile, LA VIE EN ROSE includes arrangements of well-known French songs from the Champs-Élysées to the shores of St. Lawrence.

With French Squeeze adding vocals and original accordion accompaniment to hits by Édith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Jacques Brel, Alys Robi, and La Bolduc, LA VIE EN ROSE ends Cantabile's concert season on a whimsical, rose-coloured note.  

Make It Musical!

MAKE IT MUSICAL! is a brand new, one-of-a-kind musical theatre show created by the Cantabile children’s choirs. What’s it about? We don’t know… yet!

Don’t miss this 5-performance run at the Isabel Bader black-box studio.

Winter Song

As the days grow shorter and the cold starts to settle in, the songs of winter offer warmth and brightness that mark the changing of the seasons and time with family and friends.

A beloved annual tradition for many, Cantabile’s December concerts are a mix of traditional carols and seasonal music from around the world – a festive musical journey to light up the dark nights with our collective winter song.

This concert features the premiere performance of ‘River Snow’ by Qiushi Jiang, 1st-place prize winner of Cantabile’s inaugural 2022 BIPOC Song Competition.  

Constellations

For millennia, the infinite night sky and the luminous wonders of the galaxy have captured the imagination of artists and scientists alike. Featuring a special light installation and custom immersive animations, CONSTELLATIONS is a one-of-a-kind production that invites the audience to ponder the musical soundscapes of the universe.
