      Jonah: presented by the Pembina Trails Voices, conductor Valdine Anderson, and the MCO

      Our city loves choirs. And from the Winnipeg Beer Choir’s rowdy, audience-participatory renditions of Messiah to Canzona’s many performances of the oratorio repertoire, more and more there seems to be a mania for the nearly forgotten oratorio form. A kind of musical theatre without staging, the oratorio tends to be sacred in genre, and rose to popularity to skirt the Catholic Church’s crackdown on “spectacles” during Lent. But that work-around may help to explain why many of the best-known oratorios burst with flamboyance and humour.

      Speaking of spectacle, the MCO is also pleased to present Copland’s boisterous Hoe Down, from his cowboy ballet Rodeo and which has scored countless Hollywood films. Also to be performed are Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and de Falla’s Seven Spanish Songs. Together, these shorter works round off an evening of extraordinary music with folk undertones.
