You are invited to a special performance celebrating Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus' tenth season...

Ten Years of Our Lives
Sunday, May 17, 3:00 pm
First Presbyterian Church, 10025 - 105 Street


10th Anniversary Concert

Edmonton Metropolitan Chorus and Artistic Director David Garber celebrates its 10th Anniversary Season with a series of events during the Victoria Day long weekend, culminating in a concert, “Ten Years of Our Lives” on Sunday,  May 17th, 3:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 10025 – 105 Street.

The weekend commences with reunion rehearsals on Friday and Saturday, in which current members of the chorus will be joined by former members. The celebration continues on Saturday, May 16 with a formal GALA Banquet at Edmonton's beautiful Chateau Louis Conference Centre (entertainment, reminiscences, door prizes).

The final event is the concert “Ten Years of Our Lives” on Sunday, May 17. The concert features favourite repertoire as chosen through an online poll by current and former singers, plus audience members. This will include folk songs (“Danny Boy”, “Shenandoah”), spirituals, medleys from “Les Miserables” and “West Side Story”, plus classical compositions by Mozart (“Ave Verum Corpus”), and Gabriel Fauré  (“Cantique de Jean Racine”, and “Libera me” from “Requiem in D minor”).  The concert also includes two much-loved songs by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins “Adiemus”, from “Songs of Sanctuary” and “A Celtic Prayer,” from “The Peacemakers” (which the chorus recently performed at the Winspear Centre for Music).
