Nelson Choral Society presents Luminous

The choral selections include pieces by contemporary composers such as Latvian Rihards Dubra, as well as older works,

Nelson Choral Society’s upcoming concert, Luminous, is a musical celebration of light amidst winter’s darkness. Come in out of the cold and be transformed by “light, warm and heavy as pure gold” as expressed through music.

“The pieces in this concert were all chosen because I felt they were able to transcend the explainable and in some way shone,” says the choir’s musical director Kathleen Neudorf.

The choral selections include pieces by contemporary composers such as Latvian Rihards Dubra, Norwegian Ola Gjeilo, and American Eric Whitacre, as well as older works — a French carol and pieces by 19th century German composer Felix Mendelssohn.

Noemi Kiss will be joining the choir as a soloist for two of the pieces. Originally from Hungary, the soprano now lives in Argenta, teaching and occasionally giving local concerts when not performing and recording internationally.

In addition to singing with the choir, Kiss will also perform Bach’s pivotal Cantata 82A with instrumentalists Ruth Langevin on flute, Wendy Herbison and Vic Neufeld on violin, Martine Denbok on viola, Bob Hargreaves on harpsichord, and Jeff Faragher playing basso continuo.

Concerts are at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, December 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 15 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and $10 for students and seniors, available from the Capitol.
