The heart of a great choir is its dedication to artistic excellence. This year, Spiritus is proud to launch Spirit of Excellence. It is an opportunity for you to join a community of people with a passion for choral music by investing in current and future artistic activities of Spiritus Chamber Choir. Funds raised will support guest artists, collaborations, commissions and new artistic initiatives. Join a growing community of music lovers in celebrating Spiritus' history, and supporting our continued ambition to be an internationally recognized amateur chamber choir within a city known for its love of choral music.


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.

2015/2016 marks the 20th Anniversary Season of Spiritus Chamber Choir. We intend to celebrate, create and connect with the music community here in Calgary and throughout Alberta! Our season takes us to four fantastic venues in Calgary and will feature music from the Renaissance to the present.
