Kathleen Allan, Canzona

MCO, Canzona
& ‘Israel in Egypt’

Once a season or so, the MCO performs with a local choir, and the concert is invariably one of the season’s most popular. In 2019, the MCO has a particularly ambitious take on this tradition. We’ll be collaborating with Canzona, one of Canada’s top baroque choirs, to perform Handel’s epic Israel in Egypt. Nearly 30 years have passed since legendary conductor Henry Engbrecht led Canzona through their first season. After a short pause from performing a couple years ago, Canzona has resumed their place as one of the city’s best-loved choirs under the baton of the accomplished Kathleen Allan.
