Something to sing about .. this land of OURS.  We will visit the provinces through song and celebrate the history and culture of this great land.

A beautiful bouquet of music awaits you at the Tempus Choral Society’s 2017 spring concert: Tempus 110-voice SATB choir, new Tempus children’s choir and new Tempus vocal jazz ensemble backed by an instrumental combo.

To highlight a few of the many songs in the program:

  • Something to Sing About - ...This land of ours!  A tribute to Canada written for the 100th anniversary by Oscar Brand and arranged by Carl Tapscott
  • No Man is an Island - another Tempus standard by Joan Whitney and Alex Kramer - this song celebrates our community spirit and reliance on one another
  • Hymn to Freedom - "together molds our destiny, that's when we'll be free" a classic from Oscar Peterson
  • Away from the Roll of the Sea - This haunting melody by Allister MacGillivray evokes the Cape Breton coastline and the beauty of the harbor 
  • Blues Back to Back - The traditional Tempus challenge of the Spring concert Blues - with The Birth of the Blues and Blues in the Night
  • What a Wonderful World - The 1967 classic by George Weiss and Bob Thiele made famous again in Good Morning Vietnam
  • Canadian Railroad Trilogy - Travel the length and breadth of Canada as the Railroad is built through the music of Gordon Lightfoot

Join us for a great evening of music!
