Choeur Maha & the Isis Giraldo Poetry Project
Saturday December 6th at 8 p.m. in Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel, 400 Saint Paul Street East, in Old Montreal.
Chœur Maha and the Isis Giraldo Poetry Project will perform an evening of choral music for women's voices in this historic church in the heart of Old Montreal. The evening’s programme will feature classical choral music composed by Johannes Brahms as well as pieces by contemporary composers Aguiar, Lang and Luengen. Choeur Maha will also accompany Isis Giraldo and her jazz ensemble in a performance of several of Giraldo's original compositions.
Isis Giraldo was born in Bogotà, Colombia where she lived until the age of ten. She then moved to Canada where she continued her studies in classical and jazz piano and choral singing.
The Isis Giraldo Poetry Project encapsulates the poetic universe of her father and the musical universe of Isis’ various environments. The father: the poet Ruben Dario Giraldo. The daughter: the composer Isis Giraldo. The power of the project lies in the dynamic between the poet’s meaning and the composer’s ideas.
Chœur Maha, Montreal's premier all-female choir, is known for its support of women’s organizations throughout Montreal and is now a registered charity. The choir has delighted audiences for over two decades with its creative repertoire, high-energy performances and decidedly non-traditional take on choral music.
Admission is $20, or $15 for seniors, the underemployed and students. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
