Mount Royal Kantorei, Calgary Men's Chorus and St. Mary's University Choir jointly present Fauré: Requiem. Featuring the Kantorei Academy Strings.
Three of Calgary’s great choral groups are combining their talents to jointly present ‘Requiem’ by the French composer Gabriel Fauré. The Calgary Men’s Chorus, Mount Royal Kantorei, and St. Mary’s University Choir bring over 150 voices together to this intimate piece of death, light and salvation. The choirs are joined by soloists Melissa Jackson and Nicholas Allen, and the Kantorei Academy Strings.
Each choir will perform some of their own material before uniting for the renowned Requiem. Varied selections from each choir give the audience a diverse performance and provide a lighthearted balance to the complexity of the Requiem.
