Last performed by RES in 2012 to great acclaim, this magnificent choral work has remained enduringly popular with audiences since the first public performance on August 26, 1846. Produced by RES in 1977 and 1981, we are excited to reprise this masterpiece in celebration of the retirement of our Music Director of 41 years – Dr Leonard Ratzlaff.
With many thanks for support with this project from Edmonton Community Foundation and Francis Winspear Centre for Music.
Our popular education event Up Close & Personal returns! Free for full-time students and accompanying parents.
Enjoy the dress rehearsal together with a special presentation by conductor Leonard Ratzlaff using specially designed workbooks, and get Up Close & Personal with soloists, musicians, and singers for an inside take of what it is really like to be on the Winspear stage.
Pizza, snacks, drinks and fabulous draw prizes included.
