Here’s a selection of video and audio recordings from various performances in recent years. These include both adult and youth choirs, and a mixed choir composed of GJS adults and local singers who joined us for our Europe 2016 tour.
Canadian Chamber Choir with GJS Adults
On March 21, 2019, GJS Adults hosted and joined with this superb professional choir in Don Macdonald’s Tabula Rasa:
Winter Concert Series, December 2018 – “A Glorious Christmas”
We featured many seasonal favourites in this programme, blended with the classic Gloria (Vivaldi) and Ola Gjeilo’s contemporary The Ground (Dona Nobis Pachem).
Spring Concert Series, May 2018 – “Stronger Together”
Our May 5 Ottawa concert drew together our GJS family with the children and adult voices of Acquire, Vankleek Hill’s Community Choir.
We all have struggles in our lives that can feel unimaginably difficult, but we must remember that leaning on each other makes those struggles less difficult! Enjoy this amazing rendition of Lean on Me (We Shall Overcome):
Vincent! Gorgeous harmonies, a song about Vincent Van Gogh:
For all you Beatles lovers out there! check out this fun version of Eleanor Rigby:
Spring Concert Series, May 2017 – “Made In Canada”
May 2017 was the 40th anniversary of the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers. With good foresight and planning, we commissioned several new choral compositions. The first video below is our adult choir and guest choir Command Performance from Picton, Ontario singing the premiere of “Sleep Softly, Spirit of Earth” by James Wright. It was an exciting moment to be performing a newly commissioned and completed piece of music for our audience. It was equally exciting to be performing with Command Performance and with Greg Garrett, the director of Command Performance.
The adult choir was not the only one with a newly commissioned piece of music to perform. The JJs sang “Music Makers”, as composed and arranged by Laura Hawley.
Another new composition from our May show was “Gathered Strong”, composed and arranged by Stephen Eisenhauer. The GJS adult choir performed this piece.
