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.


Listen to choral music 24/7 on CBC Music's choral stream.
