On Tuesday night, I was informed that my next concert with Da Camera Singers will be picked up by CBC Radio for future broadcast on a future Choral Concert. Which is probably the only show aside from Saturday Afternoon at the Opera that survived this year's overhaul of the once vibrant national radio broadcast service.
It does put the pressure on us to produce an excellent concert. It will be a concert of all Canadian works, including two commissions. The program is listed below - broadcast date and time will be posted as we are informed of it.
Saturday March 14th, 8:00 PM
First Baptist Church, Edmonton
John Estacio's "Eulogies"
Eleanor Daley's "Requiem
Leonard Enns' "The Only Face I Want is Yours" (World premiere, Da Camera Commission)
Frances Macdonnell's "Arise, O God!" (Da Camera Commission, 2007)
