Concert - Helios Vocal Ensemble Performance "Treasures from the Crypt"

Berwick United Church, 7:30pm - Free for ACC campers, Free will Offering for public
Last year, thousands of forgotten choral scores were rescued from damp in the crypt of All Saints Cathedral, Halifax. Now, Helios Vocal Ensemble, a newly formed vocal quintet, presents a programme entitled “Treasures from the Crypt: Rediscovered Music from All Saints Cathedral,” including works from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. They will also be singing rarely-heard music from the collection of the late Jacqueline Harmer, which was performed at the cathedral in the 1960s and 70s. Helios is made up of some of Halifax’s finest choral singers, including Eszter Horvath, current music director at All Saints; Elisabeth Kleven, Andrew Pickett, Garth MacPhee, and John Mark Dawson. They premiered “Treasures from the Crypt” to a capacity audience at All Saints Cathedral in June, and are touring the programme to select locations in Nova Scotia and
Prince Edward Island this summer.
