Back by popular demand, Spiritus will join a chamber orchestra in performing this haunting piece on the first day of the Christian Holy Week, a fitting meditation on the last words of Christ. The choir will also perform a premiere work by Canadian composer Terri Hron entitled "BitterSweet: a passion". This work combines electronics, pre-recorded material by soprano soloists, and live choral performance. -------- TICKETS: $25 (adults) / $20 (students/seniors) Tickets are available by calling (403) 922-7021, by visiting www.ucalgary.ca/tickets, or at the door.
