Capella Intima
8pm
Trivitt Memorial Anglican Church (Air Conditioned!)
Adults $20 Students $15
Bud&Emily
Capella Intima has been delighting audiences since 2008 with their programmes of the sacred and secular from the early Baroque. Led by Artistic Director Bud Roach, “Celestial Sirens” features the revolutionary music of Benedictine nun Chiara Maria Cozzolani. Readings from the period bring to life details of this controversial composer, whose music was both thrilling for those who travelled across Europe to hear it, and at times threatening to the Church establishment that sought to supress it. Featuring Emily Klassen and Erin Bardua, sopranos, and Jennifer Enns Modolo, alto. www.capellaintima.com
