Ensemble Vocal Massawippi

The Municipality of the Canton of Hatley contributes annually to the financial support of the Ensemble vocal Massawippi, a regional choir and a non-profit organization that was established in the Canton of Hatley in 2015. In 2017, the Choeur du Canton de Hatley expands its footprint and becomes the Ensemble vocal Massawippi.

The Vocal Ensemble holds a few public concerts each year, including a Christmas concert. It notably held concerts at the Sainte-Élisabeth Church in North Hatley, at the Saint-Patrice Church in Magog and at the Saint-Benoit-du-Lac Abbey.

Christmas Concert
Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Sunday December 11, 2022, 3:00 pm
Saint-Patrice Church – 115 Merry Street N, Magog

At the winter solstice, the nights are long, the light withdraws, nature is at rest. Interiority, reflection and contemplation slowly settle in. Beyond the known story: the birth of the divine child, the star, the angels, the donkey and the ox, the Magi, feel the depth and beauty of these images filled with meaning.  

The forty voices of the EVM accompanied by an instrumental ensemble and Francine Leng at the piano, under the direction of Lise Gardner, will perform works by Handel, Beethoven, Haydn, Berlioz, Forrest, Gjeilo, Jenkins, Whitacre as well as some of the most beautiful Christmas carols.
