|purplesofa||11:48 pm - Lorca concert in Toronto|
If you live near Toronto, Ontario, Canada, you may be interested in the Jubilate Singers concert Lorca on Saturday June 11. We are singing the following works with texts by F.G. Lorca:
“Suite” de Lorca, op. 72, composer E. Rautavaara
Canción de jinete
La luna asoma
El romancero gitano (guitar) , composer M. Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Baladilla de los tres ríos
Nocturnos de la ventana (piano) , composer F. Vila
We are also singing a selection of Catalan folk music. The programme will have English translations of everything. The Jubilate Singers are an auditioned choir with a varied and multilingual repertoire of classical, folk and modern music; our director Isabel Bernaus is Catalan and is encouraging us to express the Iberian spirit of this amazing music!
The concert will be at 8pm at Eastminster United Church, 310 Danforth Ave. This is a lovely-sounding church, just west of Chester subway station. I hope to meet some new music fans!
