Luminous Voices 2021-2022 Performance Season

ISPICIWIN  (Journey)
Andrew Balfour world premiere
In a substantial new commission, Luminous Voices joins forces with Cree composer Andrew Balfour whose music Calgary audiences have enjoyed over the past seasons. Balfour is creating this music in collaboration with Calgary-based artists Jessica McMann and Walter MacDonald White Bear as well as the singers of Luminous Voices through a series of online and in-person workshops beginning in June 2021. The program will include other works by and co-curated by Balfour and Artistic Director, Tim Shantz. 

Luminous Voices is excited to welcome you to our February 27 world premiere of Ispiciwin (Journey) by composer Andrew Balfour at the Bella Concert Hall. In accordance with new government directives and updated MRU policy, we will no longer be following the Restrictions Exemption Program. Mandatory masking will still be in place, and tickets are still being sold with social distancing in mind. If this new policy changes how you feel about attending in person, you will have the livestream link to attend virtually, or we can offer you a full refund. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our General Manager, Meghan Goguen at info@luminousvoices.ca or 587-889-8370. Be sure to follow us on social media and subscribe to our e-newsletter to learn more about our guest artists and the music for this wonderful concert.

Join us at 2:30pm for a pre-concert conversation with composer Andrew Balfour and guest artists, Jessica McMann, Walter MacDonald White Bear, Sherryl Sewepagaham and Timothy Shantz.


Allegri’s Miserere & Togni’s Lamentations of Jeremiah
Luminous Voices continues a Good Friday tradition. Listeners will be transported by a new and considerably more ornamented edition of Allegri’s Miserere Mei. This stunning work is followed by Peter-Anthony Togni’s Lamentatio Jeremiae Prophetae (Lamentations of Jeremiah) with special guest Jeff Reilly on bass clarinet. Bridging sacred choral music with expressive improvisational gestures, Lamentatio is a 55-minute setting of The Old Testament prophet’s lamentations. Togni’s idea originated in a request from bass clarinet player Jeff Reilly for a concerto in which dramatic narrative events would be enacted through improvisation. The piece conveys the story of Jeremiah’s prophecies of the impending destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians, with the choir providing the crowd scenes and the bass clarinet as the voice of Jeremiah.
