Kim Cousineau Piano


With Chronos Vocal Ensemble

Special guest soloists

& full orchestra

featuring Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living and the world premiere of Song of the Future, commissioned from composer John Estacio.

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Vocal Alchemy will be taking the stage at Edmonton's Winspear Centre for its largest production ever!

This exciting anniversary, supported by the Edmonton Community Foundation and a group of generous sponsors and donors, will feature a performance of Dan Forrest's dramatic Requiem for the Living in collaboration with Chronos Vocal Ensemble. Our combined forces last performed this powerful work in November 2019... and this time we'll have a full symphony orchestra! 

This performance will also feature the premiere of Song of the Future for choir, piano and strings, commissioned by Vocal Alchemy from Edmonton-based composer John Estacio. The text was commissioned from Alice Major, Edmonton's first Poet Laureate.
