Bytown Voices Sings in Handel's oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth

On July 8th a contingent of Bytown Voices members participated in the 2018 Music and Beyond Festival in Ottawa as part of a 70 member community chorus in the performance of Handel's last oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth. Under the direction of Matthias Maute the other performers included the chamber orchestra Ensemble Caprice and the Ensemble vocal arts-Quebec (both from Montreal) and a distinguished cast of soloists including Myriam LeBlanc and Shannon Mercer. Here are a few photos with us in our red and black costumes (Music and Beyond corporate colours). This was a great experience for us all.
