The Glengarry News - - Straight Talk - – An­gela Brown

The Amaryl­lis Women’s and Men’s Choirs will be join­ing the Ot­tawa Sym­phony Or­ches­tra for a per­for­mance in Van­kleek Hill next month.

The con­cert, fea­tur­ing a per­for­mance of Franz Joseph Haydn’s The Cre­ation, will take place at Knox Pres­by­te­rian Church Sun­day, April 12 at 4 p.m.

Amaryl­lis Choirs pres­i­dent Kath­leen MacEwen is hop­ing for a large turn-out for the con­cert that will fea­ture Or­ches­tra Sacre Sin­fo­nia Or­ches­tra, made up of mem­bers of the Ot­tawa Sym­phony Or­ches­tra and Na­tional Arts Cen­tre Or­ches­tra, three soloists, the Sa­cred Mu­sic So­ci­ety and The

Spar­rows Chil­dren’s Choir.

Tick­ets are avail­able at Sco­tia­bank and Home Hard­ware, in Van­kleek Hill, or at amaryl­lischoir.ca. No tick­ets will be sold at the door.

The Cre­ation is a big pro­duc­tion so it’s not of­ten per­formed, said Ms. MacEwen.

“It re­quires a big or­ches­tra and a big cho­rus,” she adds.

“It’s a unique ex­pe­ri­ence. You won’t hear this work be­ing per­formed very of­ten. It’s beau­ti­ful; it does com­pare with Han­del’s Mes­siah in beauty and majesty.”
