With the combination of a scholarly and emotional approach, the OBC provides an unforgettable experience of choral music at its best. Now completing its fifteenth season, the professional ensemble has travelled the world and received national and international recognition. Last year, the choir journeyed to China, where it was invited to perform as Canada’s choral representative in the international festival, Meet in Beijing 2016, in Beijing and Shanghai.
