Concert and Chamber Choirs are proud to be participating in the Remembrance Day ceremony at The National War Memorial on Sunday, November 11th. For the past 45 years, the Ottawa Children's Choir has helped to honour with music the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers, and this year, which marks 100 years since the end of World War I, is no exception.
Chamber Choir was honoured to participate in the annual Senate Ceremony of Remembrance to commemorate Canada's fallen heroes and veterans, on Friday, November 2nd. The ceremony can be seen in this CPAC Special.

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.
