On the day honoring St Cecilia, the patron saint of music, the King’s Chorus will surely impart a spirit of joyful music-making to its audience, in the stunning interior of St Mary’s Basilica, with trumpets, timpani, winds, and strings blaring away.
This concert will take the audience through an array of music from Gregorian Chant through the Renaissance to the wild and crazy 20th century – the smorgasbord of great music that has made the King’s Chorus “Cecilia” concert an annual hit in Halifax. Our programme features C.P.E. Bach’s Magnificat, G.F. Handel’s Chandos Anthem No. 5, Howells’s, Hymn for St. Cecilia, Peter Philips’s, Cantantibus Organis, and more!
Director Nick Halley founded the Chorus six years ago with a handful of students who wanted to produce excellent choral music together in a non-competitive and fun environment. Today, the Chorus has a membership of 70 students, faculty and staff from Dalhousie and King’s, as well as community members from around Halifax.
The King’s Chorus welcomes both beginner and expert singers, bringing together an array of musical knowledge and talent. Their concerts, produced twice annually, have been heralded as “inspiring, innovative, and jubilant” by concert-goers.
