Concert in Ansgars Kirke (Odense)
Ansgars Kirke (Odense), Thursday 16 May 2019, 7.30 pm
The Fionian Chamber Choir sings (among others) a new arrangement of “Lysets engel går med glans” by Paul Hillier, music by Ola Gjeilo, Ole Kongsted and Oluf Ring as well as 2 pieces by the Faroese composers Kári Bæk and Sunleif Rasmussen.
The girl choir CANTUS from the Faroe Islands also participates in this concert. The choir, which has been active for some years, has gradually built up a varied repertoire, consisting of a wide selection of Faroese songs as well as Nordic and English songs. During their visit on Funen, CANTUS also visits Musikskolens Kor in Svendborg and will join them for concerts in Svendborg and Horne (South Funen).
Alice Granum conducts The Fionian Chamber Choir, while CANTUS is conducted by school and music teacher Joanna Johansen and music teacher Kári Bæk.
