On the new Ostrzyga completion:

Hardly any other work in the history of music is as full of secrets as Mozart’s Requiem, particularly the repeated criticism of the completion of the fragment by Mozart’s student Süssmayr, as there are some stylistic breaks that are not typical of Mozart. Michael Ostrzyga presents a carefully corrected version that includes the “most probable compositional solutions for November/December1791” that Mozart would likely have chosen.

Come Sing With Us!

We are an SATB community choir, and we welcome new singers. At the moment we are especially seeking Tenors, Basses and Sopranos; Altos are also welcome. We rehearse Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:30 pm at Woodroffe United Church. We invite prospective new members to join us for open rehearsals, which we hold at the beginning of each half-year session, during the month of September and January. At these rehearsals you can observe or join in and get a sense of how our choir works together. Our first rehearsal of the 2023 – 2024 season will be on Tuesday, September 12.

The ability to read music, and some choral experience (even if it was some time ago) are necessary. If you decide that you would like to join us, you will be given a voice placement test. A formal, prepared audition piece is NOT required. Come try us out!

Health & safety: After several seasons of virtual, hybrid, and modified rehearsals, Nepean Choir is pleased to have returned to in-person rehearsals. We continue provide the option for remote participation if the situation requires it. The well-being of our members continues to be our top priority, and we will continue to take precautions as we safely move closer to normal. Click here for our full health and safety policy.

If you are interested in joining us, please email nepeanchoir+auditions@gmail.com and check out the Join Us link above for more information.
