London Pro Musica Choir is a vibrant mixed-voice choir organized and run by its members. LPMC performs an extensive range of classical music–from the medieval to the contemporary–both for accompanied and unaccompanied voices. From its inception, LPMC has actively supported Canadian composers/musicians and has sought to foster an interest in Canadian choral music. The choir also has a repertoire of popular music, including jazz and folk renditions, and selections from musical theatre. LPMC remains the oldest unaffiliated concert choir in London with a current membership of approximately fifty singers.
LPMC schedules 3 concerts per season (September to May) and also typically accepts 3-4 contracted engagements per year. In addition, the choir performs regularly with London Symphonia, a collaborative relationship that dates back more than thirty years. LPMC actively pursues a cultural service role through benefit and outreach performances for local community organizations. LPMC has also appeared as guest artists with other ensembles throughout southwest and central Ontario and has participated in several world première performances.
Since 2000, one of LPMC’s priorities has been to showcase the exciting range of artistic possibilities available locally through collaboration with other music organizations. In our 2012-2013 season, LPMC performed with London Symphonia, Toronto-based Madawaska String Quartet, El Sistema Aeolian, Stephen Holowitz and jazz vocalist Denise Pelley.
