Strata Vocal Ensemble invites you to come and meet the new conductor Laurel Forshaw, who will lead a selection of choral music that is truly “heavenly”.
Eclectic, moving, inspiring and fun…these are just some of the words that describe the repertoire for the first concert of the music season. Our theme, the joy of singing and music making, is developed with vocal selections by Schütz, Byrd, Gibbons, Batten, and Gjeilo, as well as the hauntingly beautiful Sing Me to Heaven by Daniel Gawthrop.
Featured in the program is Bach’s lush double choir motet, Komm Jesu Komm, honouring the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and Britten’s compelling tribute to the patron saint of music, Hymn to Saint Cecilia.
