Voicescapes: University Choir Concert
The human voice is an incredible instrument, not only capable of carrying text, but also showcasing many different sounds to convey emotion or create atmosphere. Voicescapes will explore some of these capabilities, featuring music by composers such as Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Stephen Hatfield, Morten Lauridsen, and Sarah Hopkins.
Fairy Tales & Legends: orchestra@uwaterloo concert
A moving concert of vocal and instrumental music inspired by magical tales and legends. From the enchanting "Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty" ballets by Tchaikovsky to arias from Mozart's "Magic Flute" and Massenet's "Cinderella", as well as orchestral music from Gounod's "Faust" and the great Can-Can from "Orpheus in the Underworld" - it's an evening to transport you to another realm featuring sopranos Natasha Campbell and Autumn Wascher.
