November 28, 2015 - Handel's Magnificent Messiah in Barrie
"[Vocal Horizons']
 attention to conductor Cheng was nearly flawless as shown by their excellent entries and cut-offs...The fiery “Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs” was wonderfully executed and the difficult opening passages of “And With His Stripes” were perfectly in tune....With the wonderful chorus and excellent orchestra, this was a beautiful way to kick off the Christmas season.

December 13, 2011 - Handel's Messiah on December 11
"I went to see the Vocal Horizons Chamber Choir present Handel's Messiah last Sunday.  Our choir....six of us together...found your name on the choir list, we became very excited.  .......it must have been a great experience to perform with the Singers and the Symphony Orchestra.  We really enjoyed the performance that night." R.C.

 

December 13, 2011 - St. Luke's Advent Concert on December 10
"I have just finished listening to the CD which I purchased at the concert last Saturday.
 
Although I have been exposed to your music before, this certainly has left me with a greater appreciation for your chamber choir.  As I continue to play this in the office where I work, a co-worker who is also in a choir at another church has just been heaping praise on Vocal Horizons.  Hopefully this exposure can translate into something positive for you.

I did enjoy tremendously Hazel's cantoring of the "Our Father" in Swahili.  Loved it.! Loved it!

Good luck in your future endeavours." P.C.
