LUMINOUS VOICES AND
THE CALGARY PHILHARMONIC CHORUS

Luminous Voices is again pleased to be presented by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in its Calgary Phil Presents concert series.

Among the great composers, Gabriel Fauré was a master of vocal writing. His transcendent Requiem offers gentle respite for the weary soul. Under the direction of Timothy Shantz, who not only conducts Luminous Voices but is also the Chorus Master for the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, this performance of Fauré's Requiem will shine with truth and luminous beauty.

THE TALLIS SCHOLARS

TUESday 24 APRIL 2018  |  7:30 pm
Bella Concert Hall, Mount Royal University

For one night only, Luminous Voices and Mount Royal University present the award-winning TALLIS SCHOLARS in Calgary!

Hailed by the BBC as 'one of the UK's greatest cultural exports', the Tallis Scholars are regarded for their supple clarity and tone. In their 40+ year history, conductor Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have established sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music. They are equally renowned for bringing fresh interpretations to music by contemporary as well as past composers, such as Pärt, Tavener, Whitacre, Muhly and Jackson.

The Tallis Scholars have performed at some of the world's greatest venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Sistine Chapel, the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall New York, and the Opera House Sydney -- and now they are adding the exquisite acoustic of the Bella Concert Hall to their list! The concert will be followed by a VIP reception where guests will have the opportunity to meet the conductor and director Peter Phillips.
