Vocal Alchemy collaborates with several other ensembles to mount this choral-orchestral concert featuring Schubert's Mass in G and other works.
This presentation will also feature Chronos Vocal Ensemble, a brand new chamber choir on the Edmonton scene under the direction of Jordan Van Biert, who have spent the first part of the 2013-2014 Season focusing on 19th Century German repertoire.
Besides the larger Mass, Vocal Alchemy will present a Schubertiad, a kind of Viennese "house party" centered around casual performances of music by friends and supporters of the composer. We will invite the audience and our co-performers into our "living room" as we perform for each other.
Our orchestra includes the Strathcona String Quartet and La Folia (both under the direction of cellist Joesphine van Lier), the latter of which specializes in the performance of earlier music,
particularly Baroque. As this will give our performance an 18th-Century flavour, we are also bringing in specialist players of natural trumpets and baroque timpani to join us.
It's all-hands-on-deck for what should be a monumental concert for Vocal Alchemy and exciting experience for our audience!
Tickets will be $20 for Adults and $18 for Students/Seniors 65+ at the door.
