WAM May 5-6 Kathleen Allan

Tomorrow night, the Quintessential Vocal Ensemble returns to the Basilica in St. John’s for sixth Candlelight Concert. It’s their last performance before heading to Ottawa for MusicFest and Podium 2012. You heard a young SATB quartet here a couple weeks ago who are also attending PODIUM.

Tomorrow’s show features new work by Eric Whitacre; sacred music of Rajaton and Anuna; a guest performance by the Holy Heart Chamber Choir; and the premiere of The Al Pittman Suite, commissioned by QVE and composed by Kathleen Allan - marrying music to three poems by one of Newfoundland’s best-known poets.
