Win Tickets to Rapturous Renaissance

Jan. 11, 7:30pm 
Cathedral Church of the Redeemer (604 1st St. SE)
Tickets: Adults, $35; students and seniors, $28 

Following the success of SPEM IN ALIUM in January 2014, Luminous Voices presents their second program devoted to the spellbinding music of the 15th & 16th centuries. 
 
A signature work on the program is "Deo Gratias", a 36-part canon written by Johannes Ockeghem performed in surround sound. Other luminous highlights include Josquin Des Prez’s famous lament on the death of Johannes Ockeghem and his chansons "Absolon et fili mi" and "Mille regretz". 
 
To bridge the gap between centuries, the concert will also feature selections from Peter Togni’s haunting and reflective "Responsio", winner of the 2014 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award. The piece will feature bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly of Halifax performing with 4 luminous solo voices. Responsio is a contemporary response to Guillaume de Machaut’s "Messe de Nostre Dame". Togni reflects, comments, refutes, challenges and embellishes the bare medieval voice of Machaut.

University Theatre, University of Calgary (2500 University Dr. NW)
Tickets: Adults, $20; students and seniors, $15 

The University of Calgary's School of Creative and Performing Arts presents one of theatre's greatest love stories. 

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the American Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. 

Calgary Culture is giving away two pairs of tickets to the January 11th show at 2:00pm!

Invest YYC Spotlight: Peep: A Puppet Play About the Flood

Green Fools Theatre lost its venue and thousands of dollars of materials and art in the flood. It responded through art and is creating Peep. The mask, puppet and music show is about a mouse who loses her home and is separated from her brother by a sudden flood. As she tries to find her way back to her brother she comes across other animals who are coping or not coping at all after the flood. The play has themes of community environmentalism, team work and courage. Green Fools is working on the design and music of Peep in early 2015 followed by construction and sound design and rehearsal before the play premieres in September. It needs funding for all stages of the process.
