Post-Tour Concert

In late April and early May we tour to Scotland and Ireland, working with composer James MacMillan and performing at the Cork International Choir Competition. Upon our return we’ll present a post-tour performance of music that we shared along the way and new works that we may discover in our travels. Don't miss it!

Sunday, May 25 at 3:00pm at Christ Church Elbow Park, 3602 - 8th Street SW.

Tickets available through Brown Paper Tickets, by phoning (403) 922-7021, or at the door. (Adults $25, Students/Seniors $20)


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.
