CALGARY PHIL PRESENTS:
LUMINOUS VOICES AND
THE CALGARY PHILHARMONIC CHORUS

Wednesday 09 May 2018  |  7:30 pm
Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons
With the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus

Luminous Voices is again pleased to be presented by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in its Calgary Phil Presents concert series.

Among the great composers, Gabriel Fauré was a master of vocal writing. His transcendent Requiem offers gentle respite for the weary soul. Under the direction of Timothy Shantz, who not only conducts Luminous Voices but is also the Chorus Master for the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, this performance of Fauré's Requiem will shine with truth and luminous beauty.

*Please note that this concert is not included in a season subscription package for Luminous Voices.
