In a concert produced in partnership with Spectrum New Music, genre-defying composers rise up and make their own unique voices heard alongside a few classic jazz works.


A celebration of the wild, the different, and the outcast, featuring the music of Spectrum – a group of jazz-influenced composers crossing genres. Unleash your inhibition and let your uniqueness shine through, because in this concert, the rebel in all of us takes center stage. A juxtaposition of classical choir and improvising jazz trio  provides the ultimate cross-genre platform to explore our desire to break free of the confines of convention.   In a world bent on social revolution, can music show the length we are willing to go to define our own identities?

Guest Artists:

Chris Pruden, Piano

Andrew Downing, Bass/Cello

Aline Homzy, Violin

This concert is being presented by Spectrum Music in Toronto on Saturday, February 23rd at 7:30, at Gallery 345. Tickets purchased here will be honoured at both performances.

About This Charity

Musicata is a 28-voice chamber choir based in Hamilton. The group was established in 1982 as the John Laing Singers by Conductor John Laing. 2016/17 marks the first season of an exciting new identity for us. Since becoming Artistic Director in 2011, Roger Bergs has built on John Laing’s solid foundation of choral excellence, moving the choir in adventurous new directions. Recent seasons have featured several world-premiere performances and the introduction of delightful newer works by contemporary composers.
