Tanpura, Calgary AND Yellowknife choirs, and an artistic infographic roadmap. Only a confident musical pillar would attempt this experiment. But then Timothy Shantz, outgoing director of Spiritus Chamber Choir, goes out with a bang.

On May 11th, Calgary’s Spiritus Chamber Choir will join forces with Yellowknife’s Aurora Chorealis and conductor Margo Nightingale to present Luminosity.

Together, they will present British composer James Whitbourn’s haunting and mysterious “Luminosity” - a unique sound-world with instruments including organ, viola, and tanpura. The programme also features Zachary Wadsworth’s “Ikonic Mass” for choir and organ.

The pre-concert talk will take place at 7:30 PM and the concert will start at 8:00 PM.
