Before Chronos Vocal Ensemble breaks for the summer

Spring is a time of love and Chronos Vocal Ensemble showcases it with a nation of composers that have consistently displayed a knack for touching the heart.

For their last concert of the season, the 34-member choir sings Amour et art, a full-bodied evening featuring the 20th century French choral music of Debussy, Poulenc, Ravel and many others.

Under the direction of founding music director Jordan Van Biert, the concert is on Sunday night at All Saints Anglican Cathedral.

In addition to the great masters of French repertoire, Van Biert has also included a piece by the younger Quebecois composer Guillaume Boulay.

“I think we’re the first choir outside of Quebec to perform his unpublished music,” said Van Biert.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. All Saints’ Anglican is at 10035 – 103 St.

Advance tickets are $15 to $20. Door tickets are $18 to $23. Tickets are available at 780-420-1757 or online at tixonthesquare.ca

Every year the Citadel Theatre Young Companies conclude the season with full-scale productions and readings.

This year, the Robbins Academy presents the world premiere of Measures, based on William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. But this mad musical is set in the modern international news network.

Among the 12 performers of 16- to 21-year-olds, two are from St. Albert – Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts nominee Grace Bokenfohr and Connor Meeker.

Performances are today and tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Citadel Club. Tickets are $21 and are available at 780-420-1757 or at citadeltheatre.com.

In addition, there are staged readings from Monday to Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. St. Albert playwright Hayley Moorhouse is one of the lucky six presenting their work.

Tickets are pay-what-you-can at the door.
