Jennifer Gasoi

2013 Grammy Award-winning and two-time JUNO-nominated singer/songwriter Jennifer Gasoi is quickly making a name for herself in the world of children’s music. Jennifer has a unique gift for writing and performing upbeat, intelligent, jazz-based children’s songs that adults love too. The lyrics are clever, the melodies catchy, and the rhythms undeniably danceable.

Choros

Choros was founded in the winter of 2013 when five musicians, having previously crossed paths in various ways, decided to unite to achieve their common goal of a new, dynamic ensemble. Choros creates its own sound and vision while exploring repertoire composed and arranged for woodwind quintet. For the members of Choros, playing in this ensemble is an inspiring adventure, giving them a unique way to communicate with their audience through both traditional quintet repertoire and newly composed works.
