That is right, Musikay is ten years old and this year we have a lot to offer to you.
We have rebuilt our website with more information and some exciting new features. Visit www.musikay.ca for everything Musikay.
We have an exciting concert season; three program taking you to the best European landscapes. Our first program on October 24 & 25, Dieu, L’Homme, l’Amour (God, Man, Love) is a celebration of the French culture with music in French or by French composers. The pieces all relate to the theme of Love; from love of God, romantic love, and even physical love. Those French people were certainly not shy about the latter. Ooo la, la!
To celebrate Christmas, on December 19, we offer our annual and exceptional presentation of Messiah with soloists, choir, and orchestra. Our performance is unique because we truly bring the text to life in an interpretation that has left many patrons commenting they had never heard Messiah done so passionately before.
We close the festivities on April 16, with The world of Dufay; a wonderful marriage of the music of Dufay, Josquin and many composers of the Franco-Flemish school. Enticing melodies and rich harmonies. This is also the occasion to celebrate the short life of our Music Director’s second son with the premiere of a new work dedicated to his memory.
For those looking to learn about music and/or improve their musical skills, we offer several workshop and sing-alongs. As part of our series called The confident chorister, we offer five programmes:
There are a lot of exciting events this year and we look forward to seeing you at all of them.
