Exciting December concert news

I’m pleased to say that our December concert is shaping up to be very special.

Percussionist Chris Santos joined us at our most recent rehearsal. His contributions are really adding to the arrangements.

He is giving us beautiful Djembe grooves on our Zambian song and on our gospel tune, Wade in the Water. And he adds a lovely touch of latin rhythm on Cajon to the women’s ensemble piece, the Cuban song Sigue.

And he is not our only musical guest. Violinist Teagan Seymour will be joining us to play Vivaldi’s Gloria.

From Vivaldi, to Sting, to Cuba, Zambia, a Renaissance carol in Latin, a Ladino lullaby and a Christmas(?) jazz tune – it’s going to be a great musical trip.

We are also going to be featuring some songs by smaller ensembles. The men of the choir will perform a Stan Rogers song and a small group from the alto section (they need a name!), will be performing two beautiful a cappella pieces.

Three weeks out, the choir is sounding good and nearly ready for the stage.

Now, all we need is an audience. So, please join us on Sunday December 11 at 2 pm at the Calgary Unitarians Church, 1703 1st St. NW.

Admission is $20, or pay what you can. 12 and under free.
