Let the tranquility of a cappella music overtake your senses..
This January 15th , come and experience a peaceful evening at La Maison Symphonique de Montréal with Ensemble ArtChoral as they perform Moonlight: an a cappella choral celebration under the direction of maestro Matthias Maute.
Some of the most exquisite choral repertoire pieces will be passionately performed by the twenty-four professional singers of the ensemble.
Music enthusiasts will hear a number of the chosen works, including the well-known Ave verum corpus by Mozart and the Moonlight Sonata’s renowned first movement, both of which have been reworked for choir and piano.
It wouldn’t be a choral celebration without a surprise!
During the concert, 200 singers from five different choirs will join the Ensemble to show the audience the genuine power of the human voice.
“Choral singing allows us to express our deepest emotions. By blending the voices together in a choir, it allows us to portray the very essence of our humanity in the most beautiful of ways,” explains Matthias Maute, Artistic Director of the Ensemble ArtChoral.
Matthias Maute is well known as a choral and orchestral conductor, composer, and recorder soloist. He is the founder of the Mini-Concerts Santé, which has delivered more than 10,000 Mini-Concerts to over 70,000 people in Quebec and Ontario.
With prominent performances at Maison symphonique with soprano Karina Gauvin (includingan album recorded with Leaf Music), the Montreal Baroque Festival and the Music and Beyond Festival in Ottawa, Ensemble ArtChoral has increased its performances in Quebec & Canada since M. Maute’s appointment in 2019.
They collaborated with the ATMA record company on their ART CHORAL project, which consists of 11 CDs of a cappella music spanning the history of choral singing.
