We have been asked to perform Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah for the Montreal based Global Citizen event for equality for girls and women.
One of our members is a filmmaker and completed a gorgeous document of Choeur Maha's tour to the Métis Gardens and Gaspé in 2015. We performed songs written and directed by Kathy Kennedy in and amongst the flowers. Here it is!
We have had so much interest and enthusiasm. It is very exciting. We do, however, need to not be too big due to space and the Maha sense of close-knit community.
If you love to sing challenging and stimulating music from around the world, want a sense of women's community, AND you are available every Tuesday evening during the upcoming school year, why don't you audition for Maha?
Megan Batty charmed us in her interview, and further impressed us during her audition. She is a graduate student at McGill in Feminist studies and Musicology, having recently completed Bachelor degrees in Education and Music.
We will be auditioning for our new season which has the theme of Resistance/Revolution at the end of August and beginning of September.
Choeur Maha gets the opportunity to sing most of our Femna Tundra repertoire again! This time, we are raising money for the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal http://www.nwsm.info
Dear friends of Choeur Maha, we have big news.
Our dearest Solène has been selected to do a master's degree in musical pedagogy at the Institut Jaques-Dalcroze in Geneva, Switzerland for two years.
UPDATE: Friday was sold out with standing room only. We are simply over the moon. A very special thank you for Solène relentless expectation that we would get off book for the concert. Wow!
Chœur Maha continues their tradition of singing on this important day. The Concordia Office of Community Engagement has organized a 3-pronged visit in their public spaces. Each mini-concert will last 20 minutes.
