“Once Upon A Time”

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Pro Coro Canada, a professional chamber choir resident in Edmonton, is pleased to announce it will be presenting a concert in the Faith and Life Chapel at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta at 7:30 pm on Saturday, September 29, 2012.

The concert, entitled Once Upon a Time, takes texts from Hans Christian Andersen’s stories and fairy tales that have been set to music by composers ranging from Orlando Gibbons sixteenth century “the Cries of London” through Ugis Praulins contemporary “The Nightingale” a North American premier. The accompanist for The Nightingale is Matthias Maute, an accomplish recorder player. Maute’s career has soared since winning first prize in the soloist category in the renowned Early Music Competition in Bruges, Belgium in 1990. He made his debut at Lincoln Centre, New York in December 2008. In 2003 and 2005, he was the featured recorder soloist at Boston Early Music Festival.

The Conductor for this concert is Michael Zaugg, the newly appointed Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for Pro Coro Canada. Michael is known for his ability to create the environment where choristers sing their best. He chooses repertoire for concert programs that will both challenge the chorister and delight the audience. In this concert two works to take note of are Bo Holten’s Rain, and Rusk and Rosebud, the piece that inspired Michael to become a conductor, and Ugis Praulins The Nightingale which uses twenty solo voices and a recorder to tell the story.
