  • After the Snow: Etobicoke Centennial Choir's Spring concert

    04/06/2019 - Etobicoke M9A 3C1, Ontario

    Etobicoke Centennial Choir (ECC) welcomes the rebirth of spring with a joyous concert of music that celebrates the wonder and diversity of creation.We will first melt away the winter blues with Antonin Dvorak’s lyrical Mass in D Major, a beautiful choral composition with organ accompaniment that combines exquisite melodies with lush harmonic richness. Surrounded and inspired by the natural scenery he loved, Dvorak wrote this mass with a spirit of deep joy and gratitude for Creation and the gift of artistic creativity. In doing so, he gave us a glorious, enduring work that reflects his faith and humankind’s relationship with the Creator and the natural world. The concert heats up with ECC’s inaugural performance of the stirring Missa Gaia/Earth Mass, a unique musical experience that has been described as an environmental liturgy of contemporary music. Missa Gaia/Earth Mass is a compelling and always relevant work about reclaiming the ancient knowledge of our world as a sacred place – a place worthy of honour, preservation and protection. The title derives from the Latin word Missa (Mass) and the Greek word Gaia (Mother Nature), acknowledging the hypothesis that proposes all living matter on Earth could be considered as a single living entity. Written in 1981 by jazz saxophonist Paul Winter and four collaborators, including Canada’s Paul Halley, Missa Gaia is the result of Winter's desire to create a celebration that is both ecumenical and ecological, embracing all the voices of Earth. He set out to produce a mass that would celebrate the whole earth as a sacred place. This was achieved by including choir, vocal soloists, a seven-piece jazz ensemble, rhythms and percussion from different cultures and the recorded voices of whales, loons, harp seals and wolves. This rich variety of voices and styles come together powerfully to reflect the greater whole and speak of our interconnectedness with all of creation. Henry Renglich, Music Director, Carl Steinhauser, piano and organ. Seven piece jazz ensemble including Kelly Jefferson, soprano sax, Robin Howe, cello. Gabrielle Turgeon, soprano, Erin Ronningen, alto, Rigzin Tute, tenor, Lawrence Shirkie, baritone.
