Training Choirs, Junior Choir, Chorus Angelicus & Gaudeamus, The Elqui Trio; Karen Sovak, Laurie Ellington & Dr. Gabriel Löfvall, directors
Join us for our Fourth Annual All Choirs Festival featuring current members of the Chorus Angelicus & Gaudeamus ladder in an astounding collaboration with the Elqui Trio! An ensemble that is equally at home performing both classical and South American folk music, the Elqui Trio’s repertoire ranges from Baroque and newly commissioned pieces, to folk music learned in South America by oral tradition. Andean woodwind specialist and flutist Gonzalo Cortés, charango and viola player Carlos Boltes, and guitarist Scott Hill have forged careers as chamber musicians and soloists with choirs and orchestras throughout Europe as well as North, Central, and South America. The festival activities will give all involved the opportunity to connect with old friends and make new acquaintances, all while singing together and performing in concert. The program will highlight incredibly powerful music with Latin roots, featuring spirited sounds from the instrumentalists in combination with the pure voices of the choristers. Following the concert, there will be a reception for all choristers, family and friends. Come join us!
