Special guests include soprano Melanie Krueger and The Abbotsford Youth Orchestra (directed by Calvin Dyck). Alumni are invited to participate in singing a mass choir song, an Irish blessing. The program will feature a selection of conductor favorites over the years, including: “For the Beauty of the Earth” by John Rutter, Canadian folk song “I’se the B’y”, “Adiemus” with choreography, Mozart’s “Laudate Dominum”, and many more. As well, the concert includes a world premiere by Jeff Enns, commissioned especially for the occasion. Come celebrate with us on June 2 at Gateway Community CRC in Abbotsford! Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students, available at King’s Music or online at Brown Paper Tickets. Our next audition date is June 12; for more information please contact the choir manager, Cheryl Harder, at 604-703-4763.
The Alumni Project is pleased to present a choral concert featuring all the pieces new and old that represent where we’ve come from and the songs we love to sing!
Choral repertoire will include favourites such as Larry Nickel’s ‘The Storm Is Passing Over’, Billy Joel’s ‘Lullabye’ & ‘And So It Goes’, Swingle Singers ‘Country Dances’ and many more! We will also be performing the beautiful music of Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo, with ‘The Lake Isle’ featuring internationally renowed guitarist, Itamar Erez. Also on the program will feature a few vocal duets, quintets and even a medley of music from the beloved “Les Miserables.”
We are privileged to share the stage with the Calvin Dyck String Quartet as well as members of the Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir and Ajay Klassen on percussion.
