This year’s Spring Concert promises to be a feast of choral music sprinkled with a bit of jazz.
Taking advantage of the wonderful acoustics of the Westminster United Church, the Providence Chamber Singers, Straight Ahead jazz ensemble (conducted by Matt Neufeld), and special guests, the University of Manitoba Concert Choir will perform an inspiring and entertaining concert on Sunday, March 20, at 7:30 PM (corner of Maryland and Westminster in Winnipeg).
Conducted by well-known conductors and music educators Ed and Millie Hildebrand, the recently formed 60 voice U of M Concert choir draws together singers from across the university and local community.
Chamber Singers conductor Henry Schellenberg comments on the location of this year’s Spring Concert : “Increasingly, our students, alumni and faculty who come from Winnipeg have suggested alternating the concert location in order to draw from this larger community.”
The Providence Chamber Singers are an expressive and polished choral ensemble that has won a number of choral awards over the past 20 years. It promises to inspire with a wide variety of styles from “Baba Yetu” (Swahili setting of the Lord’s Prayer) to contemporary Canadian composer Leonard Enns’ Te Deum Brevis. The concert will conclude with “Abendlied,” a mass choir piece that will truly move you as it reflects the mood and emotions of the Lenten season.
This concert is also a “kick-off” for the choir’s annual tour, which will take them to congregations and audiences in Ontario and Quebec (April 19 – May 2, 2011). Tickets are $8.00 (adults) and $5.00 (students) available at Providence, U of M, and at the door (rush seating only).
