“Formed in 2009 by co-artistic directors John Brough and Jolaine Kerley, the Scona Chamber Singers are a professional vocal ensemble, based in Edmonton Alberta, who specialize in the music of the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras. In their short existence, they have presented programs of rarely performed composers from these eras, including Christopher Tye, William Mundy, Orlando di Lasso, and Heinrich Schütz.
The ensemble is made up of highly skilled choral and solo singers from the Edmonton area, many of whom have advanced degrees in music, as well as in-depth research interest in early music performance practice. Each singer brings with them a unique blend of solo and choral experience allowing our concerts to showcase not only the choir as an ensemble, but also individual solo opportunities.”
