Winter, Fire and Snow sure to spice up the season

Join Nove Voce for some of the most beautiful, bizarre and expressive choral music written.

On Feb. 8 their concert Winter, Fire and Snow will contain pieces by Gordon Lightfoot, Ola Gjeilo, Pentatonix and so many more. The choir wanted to put together a concert that showed all the facets of Winter, pieces include Northern Lights which details explorers first seeing the Northern lights over the artic, and Ice by B.C. composers Bruce Sled which is a soundscape designed to communicate all the creaking ice. There are also beautiful crowd pleasers like Winter, Fire and Snow made famous by Celtic Women and Song for a Winters Night by Gordon Lightfoot.

Nove Voce will be joined for this concert by Gabrielle Jacob and Sean Robinson on violin, David Dahlstrom on cello, Morris Scarpino on bass and Anna Scarpino on flute.

Anna, Gabrielle and David will all be featured individually with the choir. Anna in the piece Water Under Snow get Weary, Gabrielle in two movements from the Five Hebrew Love Songs call What Snow and Rakut, and David in Winter Fire and Snow.

“Having so many talented artists to work with in town makes planning any concert more interesting and more fun,” said director Robin Norman. “It adds such a variety of sounds and textures to any piece. We love singing Tundra with Maureen Nielsen at the piano but add a string quartet and it becomes even more glorious!”

Tickets for Winter, Fire and Snow are $20 on sale now at Books and Company. The concert is Feb. 8 at Our Saviours Lutheran Church 7:30 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m.
