Mannskor: Augustana’s Men’s Choir Presents “Spring Thaw”
The importance and beauty of water cannot be denied. As crucial as water is to mankind, its power to devastate and destroy is equally true. In 2013 the power of Mother Nature and significant natural “water” events provided our land-locked province of Alberta with challenges as well as opportunities which highlight the dual nature of our most precious natural resource.
In celebration of water in its many manifestations and in tribute to those affected by these events, Mannskor will dive into an eclectic pool of repertoire drawn from art, folk, and gospel traditions inspired by the universal element of water at their upcoming spring concert. A splash of music will be added to celebrate both the Ides of March and St. Patrick’s Day.
Along with special guest artists Dr. Roger Admiral (piano) and Olav Traa (French horn), as well as presentations by the Battle River Watershed Alliance and Ducks Unlimited Canada, the concert takes place on Sunday, March 16th at 7:30 pm at the Augustana Campus Chapel.
Mannskor: Augustana’s Men’s Choir is a non-auditioned ensemble that encourages men from the Augustana Campus and Camrose area to explore the joy and comradery of choral singing. Through diverse repertoire drawn from the bountiful male choral tradition, choristers from Mannskor are led to improve vocal technique and choral musicianship skills. Mannskor serves to build strong relationships between Augustana students, staff, faculty, and members of the University and Camrose communities. This choral ensemble is directed by Dr. Ardelle Ries.
