Xara Choral Theatre is remaking the idea of the “choir.” Weaving together contemporary choral singing, movement, lighting, and spoken word, their breakthrough performances tell stories that are transformative for audiences and performers alike. Led by co-Artistic Directors Christina Murray and Claire Leger, in July 2013, Canada’s national choral competition proclaimed Xara the top women’s choir in the country.
