7:30 p.m., Winspear Centre
Our Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus is very proud to invite you to the World Premier of this new work by Canadian composer Allan Bevan. The Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus commissioned this work, which is based on the ideas, poetry, and visual art of the English mystic William Blake. It is a multimedia work for chorus, orchestra, soloists, and actors.
The Concordia Symphony Orchestra will accompany the Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus and soloists in performing this new work at the Winspear Centre for Music on April 15 starting at 7:30 p.m. The performers include several McCauley and Boyle Street actors and singers, including myself. Images of William Blake’s artwork will be projected on screens above the stage as the music is played and sung.
What a wonderful event to be a part of. We are thrilled to be able to sing this beautiful music, as we were when we sang Allan Bevan’s music at Carnegie Hall in New York a couple of years ago, with Allan Bevan playing the organ on stage. Don’t miss this! Tickets are $20 to $40 through Tix on the Square or Eventbrite.ca. Children 12 and under are free.
