LAUDATE SINGERS present
Saturday March 8, 2008 – 8:00 pm
St. Andrew’s United Church
10th & St. Georges, North Vancouver
In their first concert of 2008, Laudate Singers and conductor Lars Kaario weave a rich and lively Choral Tapestry out of music from across centuries and world cultures. The radiant sounds of the North Shore’s premier chamber choir will be accompanied by a colourful display of scarves, dresses, tapestries, dolls, kelp baskets and other art pieces by members of the Vancouver Guild of Fibre Arts.
The musical programme will feature the world premiere of a new work by Laudate Singers’ award-winning young composer-in-residence Bruce Sled, as well as Gregorio Allegri’s glorious medieval Miserere, Mei Deus, Samuel Barber’s moving Agnus Dei, a trio of sacred pieces by 19th-century German composer Josef Rheinberger, Claude Debussy’s Trois Chansons, and newer works by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Juhani Komulainen (both from Finland) and Vancouver’s own Moshe Denburg.
Laudate Singers are pleased to join with local artists in creating this Choral Tapestry, full of vibrant textures both aural and visual…a warm, bright blanket of sounds and colours. Music to make your ears sing!
