Orpheus Choir of Toronto

The Orpheus Choir of Toronto’s final program of the season will push the boundaries of choral performance the furthest with Jocelyn Hagen’s The Notebooks of Leonardo DaVinci. This 40 minute work for choir, orchestra, and projected film employs newly developed technology wherein the video elements (created in tandem with the music) are able to be slowed down or sped up in accordance with the ensemble’s rubato. Long story short: no click track! The text uses quotes from the Italian genius’s own writing, providing unique insight into DaVinci’s mind. I am thrilled that our performance will be the Canadian premiere of this piece. Various short pieces from the Italian Renaissance era will round out this program.
