The John Rutter at Music & Beyond concerts were a huge success! The Ottawa Children's Choir were honoured to sing under the direction of eminent conductor and composer John Rutter, and loved performing with the Elmer Iseler Singers, the Capital Chamber Choir, Mireille Asselin, Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra and violinist Kerson Leong.  Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the music.
