Chronos Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2013 by Jordan Van Biert. Under his leadership, and through collaborative learning with careful preparation and dedication to the choral tradition, the choir aims to deliver compelling performances to audiences in Edmonton and beyond. The singers are united in an appreciation for inspired music-making and significant repertoire. Coming from diverse ages, backgrounds and professions, they each possess a high level of musicianship, strong individual vocal technique and flexibility.
A “a rapidly rising star in the Canadian choral scene” (Anacrusis magazine), the ensemble was awarded the Healey Willan Grand Prize in the 2015 National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs, and has performed throughout the Canadian prairies, including by invitation at distinguished events including the University of Alberta Alumni Centennial, Alberta Music Conference, and the Podium 2016 Festival and Conference.
The choir has released two successful recordings: Presenting Chronos Vocal Ensemble (2015) and The Simplest Way: The music of Trent Worthington (2016), reviewed glowingly in Anacrusis magazine: “I would highly recommend this CD to lovers of choral music… very fine singing.”
