Vocal Alchemy’s 15th anniversary gala celebration will be a musical feast for the ears as we take our annual orchestral-work concert up a notch with a performance at the spectacular Winspear Centre. Music of Mozart for large choir, orchestra, and soloists will be paired with a variety of a cappella and accompanied selections, including the premiere of a newly commissioned work by Canadian composer Mark Sirett. We’ll be joined by Chronos Vocal Ensemble, the Alberta Baroque Ensemble, and four fabulous soloists.

Don’t miss this exciting milestone!

Vocal Alchemy looks back at our 15 year performance history, bringing out some choir and audience favourites from the vault and polishing up some brand new items. This program will feature the great variety of genres and styles we love to sing: classical and baroque music, contemporary pieces with piano, folk songs, and spirituals. We welcome special guests, Ante Meridiem, and a guest rhythm section that will get toes tapping. The concert will also feature a performance by the men of VA and friends.

The program will be just under two hours in length.
