LU choir in con­cert

The Sudbury Star - - LIFE -

The Lau­ren­tian Univer­sity choir will present their fall con­cert on Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. at SteAnne-des-pins, 14 Beech St.

The choir will be joined by the Sud­bury Stu­dio Singers, a 20-voice cham­ber choir who are launch­ing their sec­ond sea­son in Sud­bury. The choirs will per­form The Sea­sons, Haydn’s fi­nal or­a­to­rio, in what is be­lieved to be the first per­for­mance in Sud­bury. The work is unique in its sec­u­lar set­ting of the ru­ral sea­sons in the 18th cen­tury.

Guest soloists for the con­cert will be so­prano Kath­leen Pro­mane, tenor Ja­son La­mont, and bari­tone Bradley Chris­tensen. The choirs are con­ducted by Robert Hall. Ian Sadler from Strat­ford will ac­com­pany on or­gan; he will put the Ste-Anne-des-pins or­gan to the test. The pipe or­gan is the largest in Sud­bury, hav­ing been trans­planted to the church from Mon­treal when the build­ing was con­structed in 1995. The church is also known for its splen­did acous­tics, which will re­ver­ber­ate with the sounds of the 50-voice choir.

Ad­vance tick­ets are avail­able at Grove’s-YIG, and Jett Landry Mu­sic on Lasalle Boule­vard. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion is $20, and stu­dents and se­niors cost $15.
