No one should have to walk through life on this planet without experiencing at least one great performance of choral music.

Here in Canada we’re lucky, because there are great choirs in every province, city and community. If you keep your ear to the ground, you’ll find a great choral performance coming up near you.

With that in mind, CBC Radio 2's Choral Concert crew has put together a list of 10 must-see choral events in the coming season. Click "open gallery" to view our picks, from West Coast to East. And tune in Sunday, Sept. 22, at 9 a.m. (9:30 NT) to hear some of these choirs in action.

Of course, there are hundreds more concerts out there that didn't make this list, but this small sampling will give you an idea of the range and quality of what we have here in Canada's choral world.

Is there an upcoming Canadian choral concert that you're excited about? Tell us about it in the comments below.

Hey Tony, You are beautifully maintaining the high standards set by Peter Togni. This morning was exceptionally breathtaking. My only complaint is that the show was only one hour long. Keep up the good work!

Your "open gallery" for ten best concert picks gives only a blank page. I am interested to find out more  the Arvo Part concert

On the 14th of November, at the Basilique Notre-Dame in Montreal, don't miss The Thomaner: the Great Bach’s Own Heirs. The legendary Thomanerchor, or St. Thomas Boys Choir of Leipzig, is the very choir that Johann Sebastian Bach directed for close to 30 years. It is the first visit to Canada for this prestigious ensemble who, for the occasion, will be accompanied by the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra in a Bach-Vivaldi program. Presented in the majestic setting of the Notre-Dame Basilica, the prelude of the Bach Festival is an event not to be missed. More informations at www.festivalbachmontreal.com
