Choral Scene, ...

Choral Scene, ... continued very special part of the Toronto . Children's Chorus organization, making sure that the smaller ~hildren have a good grounding m the basics of music-making and have fun at the same time. bTHER HIGHLIGHTS On October 26, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir combine for a performance 'of St. Paul by their patron composer, Felix Mendelssohn, all under the direction of Noel Edison in the grand old Massey Hall. For the choral music lover with catholic tastes, a trip to York University is in order on October 27 for AcappeUafest, featuring Wibijazz'n, Cadence, Retro City and the marvelous Hampton Avenue. On the 28th, the CBC presents Alexander Dobson in recital at the Glenn Gould Studio. Alex is an alumnus of the Toronto. Children's Chorus and the Ontario Youth Choir who is forging an impressive solo career. Admission is free. I urge you to go, if only to say you heard him when., .. The Exultate Chamber Singers present some substantial choral works of the early to mid 20th century on October 30, including a performance of the Hymn to St. Cecilia by Benjamin Britten. Looking into the first week of November, I am really looking forward to Tafelmusik's performances of King Arthur, Henry Purcell's celebrated yet infrequently performed masterpiece. This is a difficult piece to perform because it's a "semiopera". comprised of almost University Settlement Music & Arts School 23 Grange Rd (Dundas and McCaul-near the AGO) Since 1921 providing quality programs at affordable rates, all ages, levels and styles Individual lessons on 17 instruments and voice Group classes in dance, art and pre-school music Subsidies available for low-income families For information and registration call Annette or Julie at 598-3444 VocalPoint Chamber Choir Ian Grundy, Conductor F AIRE Is THE HEAVEN Mas~ in g minor - Vaughan Williams Three Latin Motets - Stanford Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence - Bairstow Behold the Tabernacle - Willan Faire Is The Heaven - Harris SATURDAY NOVEMBER 6, J999- 8:0 Church of the Holy Trinity Toronto Eaton Cef! c''iFW: A¥(' equal part spoken and sung words. The Tafelmusik performances will include all the music and narration, so the audience can keep up with the story. Some of Purcell's best-loved songs - Fairest Isle, How Blest are Shepherds - appear in King Arthur, and it's also full of gorgeous ensembles and instrumental dance music. It's a mustsee.
