Event description

Description

Join Kris Epps and Cantiamo for A Winter’s Day, an eclectic array of choral music in celebration of all aspects of the season: the sacred, the festive, and the meteorological. The concert presents contemporary compositions alongside fresh, modern arrangements of traditional holiday music.

The evening’s performance includes an exquisite arrangement of the Norwegian carol I denne søte juletid, featuring solo soprano and violin. Eric Whitacre and Nicholas Myers both offer quiet meditations on the wonder of the season, the softness and deep silence of a snowbound landscape.

The major work will be Canadian composer Sarah Quartel’s A Winter Day, a suite in five movements featuring choir, cello, and piano. The setting of works by poets Sara Teasdale, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and Melville Cane takes us from the hours just before dawn through to nightfall, evoking the myriad transformations of light and colour during the course of a Canadian winter day.

Interspersed throughout the evening are joyous versions of well-known carols and an African-American spiritual.

Cantiamo is delighted to welcome back soprano soloist Ellen Wieser. Cellist Elie Boissinot joins us for the first time
