Under the direction of Michael Zaugg, and as a Winspear Resident Company, the choir is widely recognized as one of this country’s finest. Recent highlights include two live recording releases, a composer-in-residence program with internationally renowned Welsh Composer Paul Mealor, and critically acclaimed tours of four provinces. Pro Coro Canada believes strongly in community partnerships and over the past few years has collaborated with eleven community choirs as well as mentoring emerging singers, composers and conductors through the #connect Program.
