In May, we were thrilled that pianist Catherine Robertson joined the choir to perform Jonathan Dove's The Passing of the Year. DaCapo also premiered a new piece, The Silence, commissioned by the choir, by overtone specialist, Gerard Yun!
At our March 2011 concert we performed the 2010 NewWorks winning entry, Tabula Rasa by Don Macdonald. Don joined us for this concert, all the way from Nelson, BC! Also joining us for the concert were harpists Lori Gemmell (KWS) and Sharlene Wallace.
Thank you to those that joined us on Thursday March 3rd, 7:30pm at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery for our gala reception. It was a wonderful, celebratory evening.
Organist Lottie Enns-Braun and saxophonist Allen Harrington (both from Manitoba) performed Leonard Enns' Vanishing Point, winding a thematic thread through deeply moving choral music of arrival and departure.
