Eight Voices. Centuries of Music. Experience the stunning power of choral music through Opus 8's tribute to H20, a performance inspired by life's essential element from the 16th to the 20th century, proving human's timeless fascination with water.
At intermission, a delicious light dinner provided by Prince Edward County's iconic Picnic, will be served under the tent right on the shore set against the stunning backdrop of Lake Ontario. And, the brilliant mixologists at Kinsip House of Fine Spirits and The County Bounty Artisanal Soda Company are partnering for this fabulous occasion to create very special Water Week-themed cocktails for our guests.
Opus 8 comprises eight of Toronto’s finest ensemble singers, dedicated to musical excellence in the pursuit of sharing the best choral music with the widest audience possible. Their repertoire covers the breadth of history, from unpublished 14th century chansons and 17th century partsongs to 21st century jazz arrangements.
From the wild soundworlds of Stockhausen, Schoenberg and Machaut to the elegant compositions of Elgar, Brahms and Bach, this versatile and invigorating group of choral soloists draws diverse audiences of all ages, both experts and newcomers, with a motivation to inspire all through their formidable artistry. Silly and serious, sublime and audacious, Opus 8’s vision is an ambitious and compelling venture into spreading their love of music-making at an internationally high standard.
