As Ontario concert-goers looked forward to the 2010 Elora Festival, publicists assured them of world-class talent and repertoire stretching from Beethoven to Broadway, Celtic to Opera, plus 'our own' Elora Festival Singers.

Picturesque Elora is a village community (population 4,500) on the Grand River within the township of Centre Wellington, Ontario; Its motto? Tempus Rurum Imperator ('Time commands all things').

At this popular spot the Elora Festival Singers are central to the Elora Festival described in its 2010 'blurb' as an 'intimate experience where the atmosphere is as magical as the music itself'...
