Pure, floating voices, impeccable intonation, and the performance of a variety of choral music from the Early Renaissance to the Avant-garde combine to create Pro Coro Canada – one of Canada’s few professional chamber choirs.

Founded in 1981 by Canadian Michel Marc Gervais, Pro Coro Canada is a resident ensemble at the Francis Winspear Centre for Music. In addition to a subscription concert series in Edmonton, the 24 voices of Pro Coro has performed at the Toronto International Choral Festival (1994 and 2002), the 1988 Olympic Arts Festival, and Canadian Voices (2003 landmark series of concerts celebrating 50 years of professional choral singing in Canada and R. Murray Schafer’s 70th year).
