Building community and moving audiences with choral music on the North Shore

Laudate SingersLaudate Singers, founded in 1995 by current Artistic Director Lars Kaario, is a chamber choir that strives to foster the development of professional musicians and enrich the cultural fabric of our community. Laudate Singers presents repertoire across periods, cultures and genres.

A committed champion of Canadian choral music, Laudate Singers commissions and performs new Canadian works. Since 1995, the choir has been mentoring and nurturing young composers through its composer-in-residence programme. Our audiences are often the first to ever experience new works by established and emerging composers.

The choir has recorded seven critically-acclaimed CDs: Christmas Journey, Songs of Heaven and Earth, A Baroque Christmas, Celtic Journey, Voices, Sax & SynVoice of the Tango, and Mystics & Lovers.

Laudate Singers firmly believe that music cannot happen in a vacuum; community outreach and collaboration are pillars of the choir’s mandate.
