King's Chamber Choir nominated for Jack Richardson London Music Award
March 15, 2018
This is the third time the King’s University College Chamber Choir has been nominated for a prestigious Jack Richardson London Music Award. The Chamber Choir won the award in 2016 and has been nominated again, this year, in the category of Classical Choir/Choral Group.
Part of the adjudication process is through online voting. The King’s community is invited to support conductor Janet Loo and the Choir in their bid to win again. We invite and encourage you to cast your vote.
1. If you’ve never voted before for the JRLMA, please register to vote and wait for about a day to receive e-mail confirmation.
2. After you receive your confirmation (or if you’re already a JRLMA voting member), vote online.
The King’s University College Chamber Choir is comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members, under the direction of Loo. She is also a campus minister at King’s with an area of responsibility in music ministry. Loo is a mezzo-soprano and she has a second appointment as a music education lecturer at the Don Wright Faculty of Music at Western University. The Chamber Choir was established in 2010 with the support of the Office of the Principal, Dr. David Sylvester.
The Choir performs two large-scale concerts a year. Their next performance is on Saturday April 7, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at The Chapel, Windermere on the Mount, 1486 Richmond Street, London. The concert is titled "A Celtic Choral Celebration" and features special guest artists Tara Dunphy and Larry Smith. Admission is by freewill donation with proceeds to the Refugee Sponsorship program at King’s.
The following evening, April 8, 2018, is the Jack Richardson London Music Awards classical and jazz awards show at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) at Aeolian Hall, London. Admission is free.
