The Queen's Choral Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble are delighted to share a concert entitled "When Music Sounds". This concert will feature the Queen's Choral Ensemble in the first half, with compositions by Sirret, Burge, and Gjeilo, followed by the Percussion Ensemble after the intermission, featuring a variety of percussion combinations. The Queen’s University Choral Ensemble is open to the entire Queen’s Community. This mixed voice, large ensemble, conducted by Darrell Christie, rehearses throughout the year (September to April) performing several public concerts annually. The ensemble has had the opportunity to sing regularly with the Kingston Symphony Orchestra, Queen’s Symphony Orchestra, and last year had the chance to participate in a workshop with the Canadian Chamber Choir. Previous significant works performed have included Faure’s Requiem, Orff’s, Carmina Burana, and Jenkins’ The Armed Man. The ensemble also focuses on contemporary and Canadian works, performing repertoire by Lauridsen, Rutter, Whitacre, and Runestad, to name a few. The ensemble regularly performs at Queen’s University Remembrance Day Services and has also presented music at important Queen’s events, such as the installation of our Principal and Chancellor.
