TWU Chamber Singers perform in Abbotsford

Concert on Friday, Nov. 4 at Emmanuel Free Reformed Church

The Trinity Western University Chamber Singers perform in Abbotsford on Friday

Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture (SAMC) presents a night of choral music in Abbotsford on Friday, Nov. 4.

In Every Season features an 18-voice ensemble called the Chamber Singers performing with a professional string quintet, piano, and organ. The music ranges from poetic, contemplative pieces to lively American gospel.

Major works of the night include J.S. Bach’s cantata Der Herr Denket an uns and a setting of Psalm 23.

Both pieces feature local student soloists – Sarah Quinn, Katrina Reynolds, and Anna-Marie Ryan.

Every fall, the Chamber Singers perform a different Bach cantata, and this year it is a work originally composed to celebrate a wedding.

It features a soprano aria and a Baroque instrumental ensemble.

Psalm 23 is a little-known cantata by contemporary Canadian composer Robert Ingari. The work’s five movements follow the narrative arc of the psalm, concluding with a triumphant setting of “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Other pieces presented include Bright Morning Stars Are Rising; Rise Up, My Love, My Fair One; and I Am the Still Rain Falling.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Free Reformed Church, 3366 Mt. Lehman Rd. For tickets and details, visit twu.ca/samc or phone 604-513-2173.
