Via Choralis performs Requiem for Remembrance

Saanich Peninsula’s Via Choralis chamber choir presents music for Remembrance Day, featuring Gabriel Fauré’s well-loved Requiem.

For its first concert of the 2012-13 season, Saanich Peninsula’s Via Choralis chamber choir presents music for Remembrance Day, featuring Gabriel Fauré’s well-loved Requiem. The program will also include Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine and other music by Canadian composers Paul Halley, Pete Seeger, Larry Nickel and Linda Fletcher.

Pie Jesu from the Requiem will be sung by young Victoria soprano Gwendolyn Jamieson, who has sung for five years with Viva Youth Choir and recently was invited to join the adult women’s choir Ensemble Laude, one of the youngest members of that choir. She has performed as a soloist with the early music ensemble, A Great Noyse, on several occasions, and recently attended as the youngest participant at the Historically Informed Summer School in York, England.

Accompanist Braden Young studied piano performance focusing on collaborative piano at the Victoria Conservatory of Music and the University of British Columbia. He has also pursued studies in voice and in composition, and has been the recipient of numerous scholarships and awards for academic excellence as well as performance.

The performance, directed by Nicholas Fairbank, is on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 3 p.m. at St. Elizabeth’s Church, 10030 Third St., in Sidney. Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for students. For more information go to viachoralis.com.
