Coro Doice unveils concert schedule
The 16-voice choral ensemble, Coro Doice, will perform Sundayat St. Peters Cathedral in Charlottetown.
The choir will perform under the direction of Carl Mathis.
Formed in 2010, this choir, while based in Charlottetown, has members from major urban areas and all points in between, all brought together by the love of singing classical music.
Considering this is Canada’s 150th birthday, Coro Doice will present music from the 1860s, music that would have been in the top 10 for the Fathers of Confederation.
Some musical highlights concertgoers will enjoy include “In Stiller Nacht’’, “Wie Melodien’’ by Brahams; “Evening’’; Echoes’’ by Sir Andrew Sullivan of Gilbert and Sulivan fame; “Cantique de Jean Racine’’ by Faure, a choir favourite; excerpts from Sir Andrew Macphail’s “Wallpaper Music’’ as well as other songs from the late 1800s.
Two other performances will round out the season – July 23, at Bonshaw Hall’s 150th celebration and on Sunday, July 30 at St. George’s Anglican Church in Montague.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. and admission is by free-will offering.
