Sounds of the Season to include classics

Some holiday classics — and some just plain classics — will be performed by the Chamber Choir and Symphonic Winds at the Sounds of the Season concert on Saturday.

Some holiday classics — and some just plain classics — will be performed by the Chamber Choir and Symphonic Winds at the Sounds of the Season concert on Saturday.

The Red Deer College music program concert at the Arts Centre will feature Peter and the Wolf, by Sergei Prokofiev, and the Percy Granger setting of Country Garden, arranged by John Philip Sousa. The Symphonic Winds will also perform some seasonal music to get listeners into the holiday spirit.

The Chamber Choir will sing the Mendelssohn mainstay There Shall a Star Come Out of Jacob, as well as two contemporary works by Canadian composer Mark G. Sirett.

Selections include the challenging Song of the Angels, which is described as a soundscape based on the traditional Latin Gloria text. It will involve stationing singers around the audience for a surround-sound feel, and percussive effects.

The Christmas favorite Mary’s Boy Child will also be performed by the choir, along with some traditional carols.

Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. concert are $11.25 ($8.25 for children and seniors) from Ticketmaster.
