Acadia COVID-19 update



Join the Acadia University Chorus for their annual spring concert! This year's programme features select works of Bob Chilcott as well as a premiere of a brand new work by Acadia Student Kevin Pirker entitled 'Carpe Diem'

Aesop's Fables - Chilcott's engaging choral work sets five of Aesop's famous fables . Chilcott's masterful musical setting brings each story to life, from the groaning mountain to the dozing tortoise at the end of the race, resulting in a characterful portrayal of these moral tales that is sure to appeal to audiences of all ages. Mary Castello accompanies on piano.

Chilcott's jazz influences truly come to the fore in A Little Jazz Mass: The Kyrie has real groove, the Gloria swings, the Sanctus sits right back, the Benedictus hums along, and the Agnus Dei draws inspiration from the Blues. The choir is joined by a jazz trio of piano (Kevin Pirker), drums (Max Gallant), and bass (Nic D'Amato). This highly effective setting of the Latin Missa Brevis is one of Chilcott's most celebrated and popular choral works to date, and has received countless performances (both on the concert platform and as part of the sung liturgy in church services) across the world, perhaps most notably at St Paul's Cathedral, London.
