Flurries of White

Friday, November 23, 2018
8:00pm
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!

Makkipok! Labrador Inuit Music for Passiontide and Easter 

Saturday, March 3, 2017

8:00pm

Basilica of St. John the Baptist

Featuring: Lady Cove Women’s Choir, Newman Sound Men’s Choir, Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra Sinfonia, Deantha Edmunds, Soprano, and Karrie Obed, Tenor

More than 200 years ago, Moravian missionaries introduced European classical music to the Inuit people of Labrador. Lady Cove, joined by Newman Sound Men’s Choir and the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra Sinfonia, will perform 18th century classical music revived from reconstructed original manuscripts found in the churches of Nain, Hopedale and Makkovik.  You may hear some familiar tunes by composers you know well but, with text transcribed in the Inuktitut language, they take on a wonderful perspective that is treasured in the Inuit communities of Labrador.

Featuring Deantha Edmunds, a classically trained Inuk soprano, and Karrie Obed, the tradition-bearer and lead tenor of the Nain church choir, Lady Cove is privileged to have the opportunity to honour the traditions of our northern neighbors in this culturally enriching experience. Don’t miss this chance to experience this musical tapestry inspired by the Big Land!

Tickets: $32 adult / $27 (student & senior 60+) + box office surcharge 

Available at the Arts & Culture Centre St. John’s Box Office, 95 Allandale Road
