Stairwell Carollers 2015 Spring Sacred Concert Repertoire

Spring concert Programme
Spring concert Programme
Don't miss our big Spring Concert June 5th 7:30 pm at St. Barnabas Church, 70 James St. Ottawa!

If you got our newsletter, you may be aware of some exciting changes to our repertoire this spring! 

Pierre, our director, has decided to open up our musical selections to the contemporary scene and we are all super excited about it!
 
Previously, we were self limiting to the Renaissance period for our spring programme, but with some pressure from the choir (me included) and suggestions from our good friend and Dominion Carilloneur, Andrea McCrady, Pete has chosen some spectacular pieces for us to perform this year. 

My personal favourite, and OMGoodness, the hardest piece I have ever had to learn, is the modern Ave Maria by Franz Biebl. This will be our first performance of this piece, and we found an incredible version of it on YouTube performed by one incredible guy, Matthew Curtis.



Isn't that the most gorgeous thing you've ever heard? Don't miss this concert!


$15 in advance, $20 at the door.
