Bow Valley Chorus is eagerly anticipating their spring concert presentation of Karl Jenkins’
unorthodox and contemporary Requiem! This 2005 chart topping classical work displays the
composers flair for producing interesting, exciting and somewhat non-traditional choral works (in
the words of the composer he has included, “a hip-hop rhythm in the Dies Irae!"). His use of
Japanese haiku poems juxtaposed with traditional Latin texts creates a haunting and ethereal effect.
Jenkins takes us on a delicious musical journey, filled with beautiful melodies, meditative interludes
and toe-tapping body shaking rhythms! Bow Valley Chorus, under the inspirational and award-
winning musical direction of John Goulart, will be accompanied by a 30 piece orchestra complete
with four percussionists and will feature soprano soloist Karen J. Minish, mezzo-soprano Courtney
V. Murias and treble Mary Nelson.
