Primus: Amabile Men’s Choirs

Primus was thrilled to be invited to perform for choral conductors at two of the world’s largest conferences, the Sixth World Choral Symposium in Minneapolis (2002) and the National Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Los Angeles (2005).

The men have also been honoured to act as choir-in-residence for the 1st World Festival of Singing for Men and Boys in Prague during 2004, and were again invited to co-host the event in the 2008 season. This role provided Primus with the opportunity to showcase a strong Canadian presence on the world stage. Most recently, the choir won the 2013 National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs Equal Voice Male Category.

Locally, Primus has performed with the renowned Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Autorickshaw, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra London, and has been invited to perform at national meetings of Choral Canada (2002, 2006, 2014). The choir was also featured in the CBC Radio 1 documentary, Where Have All the Tenors Gone?

This past season, Primus has been invited to present the headliner concert for the American Choral Directors Association in Michigan.
