April 13 Concert   Welcome   Spiritus Wins Grand Prize!

Handel's Messiah

We continue our tradition of performing on Palm Sunday by presenting Handel's Messiah. Not only will you hear this work in a new light during Holy Week, but the use of smaller forces and early instruments will be unique - if not a first - for Calgary. With a wonderful cast of soloists chosen from across the continent, we know this will be a thrilling performance for all.

Sunday, April 13 at 7:00pm at Knox United Church. Tickets available through Brown Paper Tickets, by phoning (403) 922-7021, or at the door. Don't miss it!


Spiritus Chamber Choir, Calgary's award-winning chamber choir, is committed to providing high quality concerts to choral music lovers in Calgary and surroundings. Our members are accomplished performers who delight in sharing their love for music and the art of singing. Led by Artistic Director Timothy Shantz, the choir sings in a wide array of musical styles, from Renaissance motets to full-fledged choral-orchestral masterworks.


We invite everyone to attend our concerts, and discover the amazing wealth and richness of the choral repertoire, from the very old to the most recent. On-line ticket ordering is available.
