Oh, Canada! Governor-General sings in Yannick’s chorusmain
It has been intimated to us that the Governor-General of Canada, Julie Payette – effectively the head of state beneath the Queen – rehearsed and performed among the sopranos in Mozart’s C-minor Mass with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Choeur Métropolitain.
The performances were in Ottawa in Wednesday and Montreal the following night.
Yannick annoucned her participation after the first performance, to tumultuous applause.
