Next Concert November 18th – Peter Allen Piano
Below is a link to the series Facebook Page:
This Sunday, November 19th, at 4:00pm the King’s Chorus, accompanied by the Ensemble Regale orchestra and Paul Halley, will present its fourth annual Music for St Cecilia concert.
This year’s offering promises to be a special one, for three reasons in particular:
The first is Alliteration – the programme consists of music by Handel, Haydn, and Halley (Paul):
A Handel Te Deum in English, a Haydn Te Deum in Latin, and the Halley “Letter from Giocondo”, which is a twenty minute setting of the beautiful letter sent from a friar to his friend in 15th century Italy. There is also a Bach cantata thrown in for good measure and musical appropriateness (it is followed by a Halley arrangement for chorus and small ensemble, based on the absolutely stunning soprano aria which forms the centerpiece of the cantata).
The second reason: This concert features not only a stellar cast of adult soloists (Janelle Lucyk, Karis Tees, Nicolas Veltmeyer, and Shay Burkhart), but also two boys from Capella Regalis – one to sing soprano solos in the Handel and the other to sing the alto aria in the Bach. This is nothing if not authentic. It just happens to be authentically captivating.
The third reason is the orchestra. This is a particularly big one, with strings, continuo, and organ blown together by a full wind, brass, and percussion section. It will be a grand sound.
Or at the door, with early birds more likely to get a good seat.
Tickets are $10 for students, $25 general, $40 priority, and $75 patron.
