Founded in 1981, Exultate Chamber Singers has been celebrated for its continuing tradition of choral excellence for forty years. The choir is enriched not only by the excellent musicianship of its members but also by their varied academic and professional backgrounds. Together they form a passionate, committed ensemble with a wide-ranging repertoire.
Founded and led for 30 years by conductor and organist John Tuttle, the choir has since been under the direction of Dr. Karen Grylls (2011-2012), Dr. Hilary Apfelstadt (2013-2018), and its newest artistic director, Dr. Mark Ramsay.
Exultate is a three-time winner of the Canada Council Healey Willan Grand Prize and recently won first place in the adult mixed-voice chamber choir category of the 2019 Choral Canada National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs. The choir has appeared in performance with Alice Parker, Morten Lauridsen, and Ola Gjeilo, and has released five full-length albums to date.
