Concordia University of Edmonton’s three choirs and two handbell ensembles join forces for the eighteenth annual Sacred Music Festival. “O Day of Peace” invites the audience to leave behind daily strife, hurt, and frustration and enter an oasis of sound, by turns vigorous, wistful, and ethereal, exploring the prospects and promises of reconciliation and peace. Repertoire includes the powerful Sanctus from Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man and two world premieres by Jubiloso! Bells of Concordia.
Special guests include Chronos Vocal Ensemble, directed by Jordan Van Biert, and members of three church choir communities swelling the massed choir. The audience will be invited to join in singing a few hymns through the afternoon, accompanied on the Davis Concert Organ.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, students and children plus applicable service charges and are available from the Winspear Box Office (780.428.1414) or Concordia’s Bookstore.
