The Cantata Singers of Ottawa present an afternoon delight of choral music composed variously in and for the Winter season. The centrepiece of the programme is the excellent Missa Brevis by Zoltán Kodály. This piece has it all: high-flying angelic sopranos, deep rumbling basses, moments of nervous quiet, dramatic excitement, even a near stampede.
Also on the bill are some exquisite works by other 20th-century and contemporary composers
As it happens, you'll be hearing a bunch from me in this concert. We are also joined by the fabulous Shawn Potter on the organ. Andrew McAnerney teases the very best out of us as usual.
Tickets are very affordably priced with discounts for advanced purchase. Details available on the choir's web site.
