This holiday season the chorus presents a repertoire that includes the world premiere of music director Edward Connell’s setting of Hamlet’s famous lines, "What a piece of work is a man", along with a widely varied program that travels from Mozart’s Masonic Lodges, through the concentration camps at Terezin and Buchenwald, to the dark days of the American slave trade, the Canterbury Tales of Chaucer, and finally, a "lodge of broken bark" in Bethlehem."

Special guests include Bruno Cormier, Baritone; Stephen Erickson, Tenor; and William Webster, narrator in Schoenberg’s powerful holocaust work, "A Survivor from Warsaw."

William Webster is a founding member and resident artist of the Soulpepper Theatre Company and has performed in fourteen seasons at the Stratford Festival. His stage credits include Soulpepper’s productions of King Lear, Our Town and The Government Inspector; the Canadian Opera Company’s production of The Handmaid’s Tale and CanStage’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile. His film and television credits include My Own Country, directed by Mira Nair; Witchblade and the critically acclaimed television series Queer As Folk.
