Hexaphone and Via Choralis join up for Northern Reflections

Next month Via Choralis will be returning to the roots of Scandinavian choral tradition and performing pieces from faraway places

Via Choralis chamber choir is presenting Northern Reflections with special guests Hexaphone Feb. 3.

Next month Via Choralis will be returning to the roots of Scandinavian choral tradition and performing pieces from places including Iceland, Norway and Sweden in their upcoming show Northern Reflections.

The singers worked with native speaking coaches to be able to perform the pieces in the original languages they were penned.

The choir will also be adding pieces from local composer and Via Choralis conductor Nicholas Fairbanks and special guests Hexaphone will present pieces from Canadian composers Stephen Chatman and Derek Holman.

Together the two groups will end the concert with the song Prayer and Temple Dance from Norweigian Edward Grieg’s opera Olav Trygvason.

The show takes place in Sidney on Sunday, Feb. 3 at St. Elizabeth’s Church (10030 Third St.) Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students and are available at Tanner’s Books, through choir members or at the door.
