Lady Cove – Flurries Of White

Alternative venue – Cochrane Street United Church

Featuring: Lori Gemmel, harp, and Nathan Cook, cello

This season, our Christmas gift to you is pairing two of the most beloved Christmas suites for treble voices – the iconic Ceremony of Carols, by Benjamin Britten, and the modern favourite Snow Angel, by Canadian composer, Sarah Quartel. Britten’s work, written primarily in Middle English and Latin, hearkens another time. In stark contrast, Quartel’s work boasts a youthful and hopeful energy. Together, we will explore the varied traditions, emotions, and colours the Christmas season has to offer. And, if that wasn’t enough, Lady Cove has decided to make its own contribution to the Christmas catalogue by commissioning a brand new Christmas suite for women’s voices by our very own Leslee Heys, Radiance in Winter. We won’t give too much away, but this exciting new song cycle explores the common and sometimes contradictory themes that winter brings forth: darkness and light, wonderment and introspection, joy and peace.  We look forward to kicking-off the Christmas season with you!

Tickets: $30/$25 (student & senior) + box office surcharge
