The concert title is “Peace, Hope, Joy, Love” to be held on Sunday December 2, 2018 at Trinity United Church, 400 Stevenson Street North, just south of Speedvale East.
The programming is informed by the four themes of Advent: Peace, Hope, Joy, Love and features Carols from Medieval times to the present. The concert will include several of our Kiwanis Music Festival scholarship winners, a “Peace” tribute to the end of World War I, one hundred years ago now, and audience singing. As part of the “Peace” tribute, Conductor Gordon Burnett has commissioned highly acclaimed composer Jeff Enns to set the text of an award winning poem his daughter wrote in elementary school, for three part male choir and piano. This, along with our Kiwanis scholarship winners will make a lovely inter-generational component to the evening.
Guelph Male Choir will be singing in A Christmas Community Concert, Friday December 7, 2018, 7 pm at Lakeside Church. Ten choirs from our community will be singing songs of the season. Each group will perform on their own as well as in a massed choir “Hallelujah Chorus” as the finale.
Tickets will be available through choir members and at the door.
