We take great pleasure in welcoming back Hart Godden with his exceptional group, Halcyon Chamber Choir. The last time Halcyon performed with us was for Charpentier’s Messe du Minuet and we are really excited to now be performing Charpentier’s Te Deum. Hart will be our guest conductor, bringing together his fantastic choir and our period instrument ensemble for a spectacular performance of this piece. Partnerships such as these build a stronger musical community.
For this concert, Natalie DeJong from Calgary will be joining us for the first time on baroque trumpet. We can’t wait to have a trumpet to call in Charpentier’s Fanfares. Having a trumpet from this time period is a real treat. Natalie will also be giving an open workshop for all to come and learn about the history of the trumpet. How did it make the leap from the simple buffalo horn, to the baroque trumpet to the modern day trumpet? Natalie will take us on a journey of discovery. Watch for details about this workshop on our website or Facebook.
