Events Description

The second concert of the 2019 – 2020 our season brings together the talents of Michelle Todd, Soprano, Jay Michalak, Trumpet and the members of Cum Vino Cantus under the leadership of Michael Coburn, Artistic Director. These wonderful local artists join the Calgary Civic Symphony in offering our 2019 – 2020 Christmas concert, “Christmas Star” which will take place on Sunday, December 8th at 2:30 pm at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons.

Maestro Rolf Bertsch conducts the Civic as we launch the concert performing Karl Jenkins “Stella Natalis”, a work in twelve movements celebrating different aspects of Christmastide – winter, the sleeping child, tidings of peace, thanksgiving – with text sources ranging from Psalms to Carol Barratt. Conveying the Christmas message of peace, goodwill, compassion and a new beginning, Stella natalis (‘star of birth’, ‘star of origin’) draws on an expanded palette of inspiration, including the Old Testament, Zulu text and reference to Hindu gods. Vocal score for solo soprano, mixed choir, female choir, and piano reduction of the instrumental parts. The second half of the program will include many seasonal favorites including the Trumpeter’s Lullaby and the Hallelujah Chorus.

The Calgary Civic Symphony was founded in 1975 as Calgary’s volunteer orchestra. Over the years, the Civic has swelled to over 80 musicians. With an interesting diversity in professions, its members come together each week to rehearse complex orchestral works. Under the baton of Artistic Director and Conductor Rolf Bertsch, the Symphony shapes and polishes performances that are truly brilliant!
