Singers join Chorus for Season of Joy

The U of L Singers and U of L Women's Chorus share the stage for Season of Joy on Nov. 28 at 8 p.m. at Southminster United Church. The evening features a rich program of choral repertoire from traditional works to familiar seasonal classics.

"With this concert the U of L Singers take a different direction this year," says Dr. Janet Youngdahl, the ensemble's director. "Sharing this concert with another group is a good change for the choirs and showcases our wonderful choral areas of study at the University."

The U of L Women's Chorus is the newest addition to the choral program.

"We have a great bunch of students – both music majors and non-music majors," says Joanne Collier, director. "Women's Chorus is the next big thing on the choral circuit. The U of L Women's Chorus presents some of the exciting emerging repertoire for women."

Audiences can expect a robust selection of music for Season of Joy.

"The U of L Singers perform Imant Raminsh's Magnificat, an exuberant and challenging work for choir," Youngdahl says. "We'll also perform Regina Coreli by Mozart featuring soloists drawn from the choir."

The second part of the concert features seasonal classics and favourites as both choirs take to the stage together.

Combined or separate, these choirs are sure to delight audiences; sharing their song and the joy of the holiday season.

Tickets are $15 regular and $10 for students and seniors, and are available at the U of L Box Office (403-329-2616) or at the door on the night of the concert.
