This year, Chor Leoni will be accompanied by a special guest, critically acclaimed violinist/fiddler Cameron Wilson, who has appeared on the recordings of Bryan Adams, Nickelback, and Charlotte Diamond, and regularly performs with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Opera Orchestra, acoustic string jazz quartet Van Django and the Hard Rubber Orchestra. Wilson’s reunion with the men’s choir promises to amplify the festive performance as the musician weaves his jazz, classical, and folk influences into the season’s most popular classics.
As one of the vanguard male vocal ensembles in North America, Chor Leoni’s soaring Singing Lions have been entertaining fans both locally and worldwide for over thirty years, and this season’s Yuletide concert is not to be missed!
