In their first concert of 2008, Laudate Singers and conductor Lars Kaario weave a rich and lively Choral Tapestry out of music from across centuries and world cultures.

The musical programme will feature the world premiere of a new work by Laudate Singers award-winning young composer-in-residence Bruce Sled, as well as Gregorio Allegris glorious medieval Miserere, Mei Deus, Samuel Barbers moving Agnus Dei, a trio of sacred pieces by 19th-century German composer Josef Rheinberger, Claude Debussys Trois Chansons, and newer works by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Juhani Komulainen (both from Finland) and Vancouvers own Moshe Denburg.

Laudate Singers are pleased to join with local artists in creating this Choral Tapestry, full of vibrant textures both aural and visualĶa warm, bright blanket of sounds and colours.

Music to make your ears sing!
