THE CHORUS

Let your soul sing….

The Regina Philharmonic Chorus (RPC) performs a wide range of music including choral works and oratorio by the great composers. The RPC frequently presents concerts at Knox-Metropolitan United Church, often accompanied by members of the Regina Symphony Orchestra. We also enjoy welcoming guest community and youth choirs and emerging Canadian soloists. Many of these young talents go on to attain international acclaim like Lynn Channing, Jane Leibel, Kathleen Porter, Renée Brad and Ben Heppner.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHORUS

Since its inception in 1972, the Regina Philharmonic Chorus (RPC) has grown to become one of the largest community choirs in Canada.

RPC’s repertoire ranges from Renaissance to contemporary. Our concerts are often accompanied by members of the Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) and the RPC regularly joins the RSO in its Masterworks Series. Our popular performances have included Bach’s Magnificat, Verdi’s Requiem, Orff’s Carmina Burana and Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man.

The RPC promotes choral music in our community through activities which include local youth choirs and soloists joining our concerts. We volunteer with the Regina Music Festival and do benefit concerts for local charities.

The RPC benefits greatly from the leadership, experience and talents of Artistic Director Hart Godden and rehearsal accompanist Alison Purdy. Rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from September through April. New members are welcome to audition throughout the year. The RPC also welcomes sponsorships, donations and volunteer assistance each season.
