Concordia Concert Choir Hits the Road

Posted on: May 3, 2018
The Concert Choir and director Joy Berg return to Edmonton Saturday, fresh from representing Concordia on a concert tour that has taken them into British Columbia and back. They sing at the Indigenous Peoples and the Christian Faith conference at Concordia on Saturday, before moving on to Trinity Lutheran Church (10014-81 Ave., Edmonton) for full home concert at 8 pm. Grab your free ticket from the Bookstore!
The capstone of the choir’s year of singing, the tour provides a forum to showcase the calibre of the music program at Concordia and to raise the profile and reputation of the institution and its offerings. It also affords the opportunity to visit with Concordia alumni and supporters.

Concordia University of Edmonton’s Concert Choir returns from a tour across the Rocky Mountains with a program that contemplates the wonders of creation across the expanse of a generous land, and sees the Creator in both the grandeur and the details. Selections range from Vivaldi’s classic Gloria to the insights of Albert Einstein as presented by Edmonton composer Trent Worthington, in a concert highlighting Canadian landscape and composers. A short talk (starting at 7:45 pm) by conductor Joy Berg and Mr. Worthington precedes the concert.


The Concert Choir, directed by Dr. Joy Berg, is comprised of 30 to 35 auditioned singers of university age from various disciplines and interests.


Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors, and are available from Tix on the Square (780.420.1757), Concordia’s Student Accounts Office, or at the door. Special Family Admission: $40 (available at the door only).
