Chronos Vocal Ensemble features fresh composers, works and faces…

The Chronos Vocal Ensemble will perform their second show of the year on Sunday, January 14 at 3 PM in the Faith and Life Chapel at the University of Alberta’s Augustana campus. The program, entitled FRESH, introduces fresh composers, works, and faces.

Artistic Director Jordan Van Biert is glad when the choir is able to bring programs to venues outside of Edmonton: “It gets this incredible music a bigger audience, and gives us the opportunity to perform in some wonderful venues; the chapel at Augustana is a wonderful space to sing in.”

The program will showcase new music from Canada, including several world and Canadian premieres, among them A Flame in the Embers, by the winner of the ensemble’s recent composition competition, Nicholas Ryan Kelly.

“Edmonton and Canada have such a rich choral community that draws upon some of the greatest musical traditions around the world,” says Van Biert. “We received so many different compositions from lots of regions, so the art is certainly alive and well in our country. Nick’s music captured the jury’s attention and imagination and I can’t wait for Chronos to perform it.”

Founded in 2013, Chronos Vocal Ensemble is an award-winning chamber choir based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 2015, the Canada Council for the Arts awarded Chronos the Healey Willan Grand Prize in the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs. In 2016, Chronos received a performance award in the City of Edmonton’s Salute to Excellence for bringing recognition to the City. The choir has released two successful recordings and will appear at the national Podium Conference and Festival in St. John’s NL in June 2018.
