Every December, Kokopelli hosts Edmonton’s largest seasonal choral concerts.
This year, we present seven ensembles of all ages, for a total of almost 400 singers.
Wintersong fills historical McDougall United Church with music Saturday, December 21, at 2 p.m. (featuring Tamariki, Kikimasu, Shumayela, Kokopelli, Òran, Vacilando) and 7 p.m. (featuring Kikimasu, Shumayela, Kokopelli, Òran, Vacilando, and ChandraTala).
Both concerts will embrace a wide array of holiday music and traditions—with the afternoon concert including the abundant charm of our youngest ensembles. Highlights include Kokopelli performing Allison Girvan’s moving arrangement of “Christmas in the Trenches,” and then some inspired silliness—followed by some exquisite Mozart—from Òran, plenty of creative choreography from Shumayela, and Vacilando shares a hauntingly beautiful Norwegian carol in a folk style. The 7 p.m. show will also feature the latest performance by ChandraTala, our brand-new ensemble for upper voices.
For a rousing finale, our choirs are looking forward to premiering a commissioned arrangement by ChandraTala conductor Laura Hawley of “The First Snow of the Year” by Canadian singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman.
