Many of us have taken a leap of faith to share our life with that special someone. Soprano Christina Jahn shares her story about how she and her husband — fellow Luminary Paul Grindlay — approached the subject.
Have you ever had to place your trust in something over which you have no control? What if you had to put your trust in Mother Nature, herself? We continue our series of chorister leaps of faith with tenor Rod Olson, who carved out a unique career in Calgary.
As we continue to count down toward Leap of Faith, for the next two weeks we will post videos of our choristers talking about instances in their lives when they took a leap of faith. We begin with soprano Julie Crouch -- and we are very glad she took her leap of faith!
Luminous Voices loves to sing the motets of Johann Sebastian Bach! For our final self-produced concert of the 2017-18 season, we're pleased to offer the motet Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf (The Spirit gives aid to our weakness).
The last work of the first half for Leap of Faith is Die Erste Elegie by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara. While that name may not be as familiar as other contemporary choral composers such as Eric Whitacre, Bob Chilcott or Morten Lauridsen, Rautavaara (1928-2016) is a well-known name in choral circles.
Our preview of the repertoire for Leap of Faith continues with a look at Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine by Eric Whitacre, with a focus on the ingenuity of the celebrated Renaissance Man himself.
