Artio specialized in choral music that is distinct, demanding, diverse and innovative. They explored a variety of genres from early music through to innovative creations crafted by contemporary composers. They re-imagined and re-invented music of the past and embraced the avant-garde music of tomorrow while continually seeking to push the boundaries of choral music and performance.
Mount Royal Artio was involved in a number of collaborative events, which included performing on stage with Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield in 2016, and Tanya Tagaq in 2017.
This program is no longer offered.
Artio’s final production entitled The Nature of Us was a collaboration with Kevin Jesuino of Traction Climate Art. Our thanks to Calgary Arts Development for their support. The performances took place in Confederation Park, October 2023.
