Harmonia Choir of Ottawa

Harmonia Choir of Ottawa, directed by Kurt Ala-Kantti, Joanne Moorcroft accompanist, presents Canada Remembers, an all-Canadian programme of remembrance, with guests the Cross Town Youth Chorus, on Tuesday, November 11th, 7:30 pm at St. Barnabas Anglican Church, corner of Kent and James.

This concert will also premiere a new work by the choir's Composer-in-Residence, Christopher Askwith, In Beechwood Cemetery utilizing the text by Archibald Lampham, as well as one of the finalists from this year's Choral Competition, Anita Pari, also a member of the Cross Town Youth Chorus, who will accompany the piece.

With the choir's usual flair for a variety of styles of music, the concert will have something for everyone, from composers across the country, to right here at home with pieces by Gatineau's Pierrette Froment-Savoie, and Dr. James Wright, with accompaniment ranging from piano and violin, to Accordion and Bodhran.

The choir loves to have new pieces to premiere, says Harmonia's Director Kurt Ala-Kantti. It's an added bonus to give such a young composer an opportunity like this to have her work performed, and to have her perform it as well.

Tickets are $15, $10 students and seniors, (FREE to children and youth)
will be available at the door, or from The Leading Note, 370 Elgin St.
