Conducted and curated by guest conductor Dr. Jamie Hillman, CANADIANA is an ode to the multicultural musical landscape of Canada, featuring works exclusively by Canadian composers. 

Still under 40, Dr. Hillman is the newly-appointed Director of Choral Studies at the University of Toronto and a burgeoning star of the choral world. His career as a choral conductor, composer, tenor soloist, and pianist has taken him across Canada, the US, as well as France, India, and Indonesia.

Canadiana will feature the winning piece of Cantabile’s 2022 BIPOC song competition: River Snow by Qiushi Jiang.
