With "Yes, Virginia," The Annex Singers celebrates the evidence of things unseen, affirming the power of belief, faith and the imagination in this most magical of seasons. This brief (20-minute) online event features works by Canadian composers Willan and Sirett, the poetry of Roethke and Eliot, and performances by actors Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath. Recording live at Grace Church on-the-Hill, the choir is joined by solists Melanie Conly and Joshua Clemenger.

About our 2021-2022 season

With our 2021-2022 season, The Annex Singers embarks on a three-year cycle of programmes exploring dialogues in their many forms and guises. Through the uniquely expressive medium of choral music, we will consider points of contact and contrast between different eras, art forms, and cultures. We hope you will join us on this journey.
