Festive, Fearless and Free – our annual gift to the community!
Camerata Nova presents its 16th free holiday concert, entitled Christmas in Early America and sponsored by Manitoba Hydro.
Have you heard of carols called Sherburne, Slow Traveller, Kingsbridge and Fulfillment?
Have you seen sheet music with hearts, triangles, diamonds and squares rather than notes?
Join us and become a New England pilgrim, singing two-hundred-year-old carols with an amazing mix of joy... and a little brimstone.
Curator/conductors Ross Brownlee and Michael McKay have put together a concert of American Christmas music like no other: Puritan psalmody mixes with songs from Appalachia and music performed in the Spanish missions of the southwest.
As always, there’s a pinch of Manitoba thrown in as we present three new adaptations of the carol I Wonder as I Wander by Andrew Balfour, Leonard Enns and Michael McKay.
Don’t worry, we’ll also mix in some holiday favourites, including a wild new version of Jingle Bells by McKay!
There will be a food collection to support Winnipeg Harvest.
We welcome donations to help defray our costs.
