Celebracion Espiritual - Cantares Choir

Saturday, 7 October 2017 at  7:30 pm, St Patrick's Catholic Church, Berry


Choral music can be both uplifting and calming. Local choir Cantares has a mission to celebrate life, love and internationalism through a musical exploration of the culture, dreams and beliefs of our global community.


Misa (Creole Mass) is a Spanish Criollaby the Argentinian composer Ariel Ramirez. Misa Criolla Under the direction of internationally recognised Dr Carlos Alvarado, Cantares has been exploring the mass based in Argentine folk music. With its message of world peace and justice, it was a worldwide sensation when it appeared and the recording has sold three million copies. For its upcoming concert in Berry, along with the Misa Criolla, the choir has also been developing a program of South American folk music exploring some of the folklore, dreams and beliefs of the diverse countries of the region,


By way of contrast, Cantares will also perform Schubert’s Mass in G, composed in 1815 and the best known of his three shorter masses. The intensity of the piece is found in its simplicity and modesty.


With soloist Kerry Nicholson (soprano), South American trio Los Inkas, brilliant piano accompanist Bethany Morris and of course the incomparable Carlos Alvarado conducting, Cantares’ forthcoming concert – Celebración Espiritual – is billed as a choral journey of unity and should prove uplifting and inspirational.


Tickets available at the door and can be booked in advance.
