London Pro Musica (= LPM) enters its 36th Season as a vibrant mixed-voice choir organized and run by its members. LPM performs an extensive range of classical music - from the medieval to the contemporary–both for accompanied and unaccompanied voices. From its inception, LPM 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. LPM remains the oldest unaffiliated concert choir in London with a current membership of approximately 50 singers.
LPM offers an annual subscription series of three concerts, and it typically accepts 3-4 contracted engagements per year. In addition, the choir performs regularly with Orchestra London Canada, a collaborative relationship that dates back more than 25 years. LPM actively pursues a cultural service role through benefit and outreach performances for local community organizations. LPM has also appeared as guest artists with other ensembles throughout southwest and central Ontario and has participated in several world premiere performances.
Since the 2000-2001 season, one of LPM’s priorities has been to showcase the exciting range of artistic possibilities available locally through collaboration with other music organizations. In 2004-2005 season alone, LPM performed with Orchestra London, Brassroots, Antler River Project, the Medway Concert Choir, the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Singers, and guest conductor, Howard Dyck.
