Saturday, April 5 (7:30 pm), Augustana Chapel
…The snow must melt, must go,
Fast as water flow.
Not thus, my soul, O sow
Thy gifts to fade like snow… (The Snow, Caroline Alice Elgar)
As the “Spring Thaw” continues to march across the land, the theme of “water” – introduced in the recent Mannskor Spring Concert – continues with the Sangkor Spring Concert entitled “Meltwater”. Sangkor: Augustana’s Women’s Choir, joins with the award-winning Ariose Women’s Choir to celebrate the flowing waters of spring and the loves that come with them.
Edmonton’s Ariose Women’s Choir (conducted by Jolaine Kerley) is an award-winning choir of 30 singers from every walk of life – all of whom enjoy the challenge of exploring and performing women’s choral music from many styles and periods. In the past, Ariose has been awarded first place in the Equal Voices Choir (Female) in CBC’s National Radio Competition for Amateur Choirs, having been a finalist six times, and 2nd place winner on four separate occasions.
Augustana’s Sangkor (pronounced sahng-koor) draws its name from the Norwegian “song choir”. This treble ensemble is non-auditioned and open to all Augustana students, as well as to members of the Camrose community. Through the exploration of musics from a variety of times and places, the choir endeavours to develop a broader sense of cultural awareness and cultivates in its members a deeper appreciation for the richness of the choral art. The ensemble is currently directed by Dr. John Wiebe.
Don’t miss this delightful concert of diverse music for treble voices on Saturday, April 5th at 7:30 pm at the Augustana Faith & Life Chapel. For ticket and other information, call ph. 780-679-1532.
