Past Events - Sing Me to Heaven

 Sing Me to Heaven

  • Saturday November 18th at 7:30 pm, Oakville
  • Sunday November 19th at 3 pm, Hamilton

Strata Vocal Ensemble invites you to come and meet our new conductor Laurel Forshaw, who will lead us in 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 our 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.

Finally, from the sublime to the ridiculous, we could not resist programming A Place in The Choir for the usual bit of Strata fun!!
