Luminous Voices the Canadian Chamber Choir

Saturday 24 February 2024 - Luminous Voices, Calgary's premier professional chamber choir, presents a captivating mid-winter concert in collaboration with the Juno-nominated Canadian Chamber Choir. The combined choirs will present an all-Canadian programme, featuring a new composition by Kenya-born, Vancouver-based composer Dr. Hussein Janmohamed. The composition, specifically crafted for this performance, adds an exciting dimension to the afternoon’s repertoire. The concert will also spotlight several Alberta composers, including Stuart Beatch, Alan Gilliland, Laura Hawley, and Sherryl Sewepagaham. These distinguished composers will be in attendance at the concert, adding a unique and personal touch to the evening. A special highlight of the afternoon is the world-premiere performance of "Voices Rising", a composition by Calgary-based composer Kathryn Parrotta. Commissioned by Luminous Voices, "Voices Rising" was a featured piece at the CBE Sings event in December. Both choirs along with workshop participants will perform it together as an uplifting finale to the concert. - Event Details
