See What You Can Hear: DaCapo's 2010-2011 Concert Season

DaCapo's upcoming concert season promises to be a vibrant one.  Each of their three concerts will musically showcase an element of visual art.
Vanishing Point ~ music for choir, organ, and saxophone (November 13 & 14, 2010)
Chiaroscuro ~ music for choir and two harps (March 5 & 6, 2011)
A World of Colour ~ exploring and exploding the colour palette:  tradition meets the present (May 7, 2011)
In November, organist Lottie Enns-Braun and saxophonist Allen Harrington (both from Manitoba) will be performing Leonard Enns' Vanishing Point, winding a thematic thread through deeply moving choral music of arrival and departure.

At our March 2011 concert we will be performing the 2010 NewWorks winning entry, Tabula Rasa by Don Macdonald.  Don will be joining us for this concert, all the way from Nelson, BC!  Also joining us for the concert will be harpists Lori Gemmell (KWS) and Julia Seager.

In May, we are thrilled that pianist Catherine Robertson will once again join the choir to perform Jonathan Dove's The Passing of the Year.  DaCapo will also be premiering a new piece, commissioned by the choir, by overtone specialist, Gerard Yun!
