Join us as we celebrate music by women, for women's voices.

On International Women’s Day, Aella Choir is thrilled to be performing a free, pre-concert recital of works written by women composers, starting at 6 pm in the NAC's beautiful Glass & Thorsteinsen Staircase.

Aella is a women's choir composed of advanced singers from the National Capital Region, which performs without a conductor. Described by Classical Ottawa as "everything modern choir should be – innovative, technically precise, joyous, comforting and representative," Aella was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Berntson.

Performance is approximately 45 minutes with no intermission.
