Dear friends and supporters,

 

We hope this note finds you safe, comfortable, and making the most of these summer months!

 

We offer a giant THANK YOU for the support we received throughout the spring months as we responded to the evolving pandemic. Canceling rehearsals, performances, and touring plans was necessary to ensure our collective safety. Your response was uplifting and reaffirming. Thank you to all who generously donated tickets and subscriptions back to our organization, made additional donations to ensure we weathered the storm, and sent notes of encouragement. It showed us just how much Exultate means to all of us. Thank you!

We’ve spent the last few months envisioning and planning for what the year ahead could look like, and we’ve got a plan that allows us to continue sharing great choral music with you while being able to respond with agility to evolving safety guidelines.

 

Most importantly, we are thrilled to be celebrating our 40th anniversary! Throughout the season we will be crafting virtual concerts that you can enjoy from the safety and comfort of your home. You’ll hear new performances as well as some of our favourites from the past, interviews with Exultate singers, conductors, and supporters, and new commissions crafted specifically to celebrate this milestone. In the spring of 2021, we hope to be able to invite you to join us in-person for performances including an exciting concert of music by Toronto composers, called “Home in the 6ix." Watch for season updates and announcements in your inbox and also on our website and social media channels.

 

These may be challenging times, and the year ahead might not look like our 40 previous years, but we are determined to continue to keep our Exultate community connected. It’s going to be an exciting year of music-making and we can’t wait for you to help us kick off the next 40 years of Exultate Chamber Singers!

Sincerely,

Mark Ramsay

Artistic Director
