Sing Choirs of Angels

The award winning Saskatoon Children’s Choir (SCC), under the direction of Artistic Director Phoebe Voigts, will be joined by a number of professional brass players from Saskatoon for its annual Christmas concert “Sing Choirs of Angels”.

The concert takes place on December 3 and 4, 2010 at 7:30 pm at Third Avenue United Church in Saskatoon, and will feature the angelic voices of more than 120 choristers, accompanied by pianist Michelle Aalders. The program will feature classical and contemporary choral music of Haydn, Schubert, Stroope, Hatfield, Sirett and Tormis, as well as the choir’s stunning renditions of traditional seasonal favourites.

“We are delighted to be joined by so many Saskatoon’s professional musicians once again for this year’s concert,” said Voigts. “Their presence not only enriches the selections on the program, but also creates a wonderful learning experience for our choristers.”

The SCC is a strong presence on the world choral stage, including performances in France, Spain, Austria, the Czech Republic, China, the United States and Canada. The choir is currently planning a performance tour of South Africa in July 2011. In December, the choir will release its fifth CD, Cantus Populi.

Tickets (reserved seating) are $20, plus service charge, and are available through Persephone Theatre Box Office, 100 Spadina Crescent East, by phone at 384-7727, online at http://www.persephonetheatre.org, and at the door.
