Cottonwood Singers present an evening of choral music on November 24 to enfold you in the warmth of tonal arms.
Evenings grow darker, snow approaches; we look inward as the days draw closer to the winter solstice just before our anticipation of the Christmas glow.
Director Kathleen Neudorf has selected a varied program of harmonically-rich music stretching from the 15th Century Italian master Claudio Monteverdi to modern composers, Latvian Rihards Dubra and Canadian Loreena McKennitt.
Joining Cottonwood is Lalin, a choir formed from graduates of Allison Girvan’s incomparable Corozon. This chorus of young adults carries on the high standard of challenging a cappella music from around the world.
Adding more warmth to the evening is Ananta, the newly formed trio of sopranos Allison Girvan, Noemi Kiss and Neudorf.
Ananta will tantalize the audience with a sample of pieces from their upcoming December 7 concert.
St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral is the location for that atmospheric choral concert. The church is the perfect visual and acoustic venue for this celebration of Nelson’s rich vocal landscape.
The Cottonwood Singers concert takes place on November 24 at 7 p.m. at St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral (on the corner of Ward and Silica streets).
Admission is by ticket only. Although tickets might be available at the door, previous concerts have sold out.
Tickets are for sale at Otter Books, 398 Baker Street and Gericks Cycle and Ski, 702 Baker Street.
