*With HKU Chamber Singers
The HKU MUSE Spring 2018 Season will raise its curtains with Canada’s Trinity Western University Chamber Choir. Under the baton of Dr. Joel Tranquilla, the Choir will present an eclectic mix of repertoire from the Baroque to the contemporary, comprising a wide musical spectrum with works by Brahms, Fauré, Poulenc as well as pieces by Canadian composers Timothy Corlis, Larry Nickel, and David Squires. The Choir will also share the stage with HKU Chamber Singers to perform Corlis’ Sonnez les Cloches (Ring the Bells), which will begin with the playful nursery rhyme Frère Jacques – one of the most widely known tunes on earth. Come experience their choral sonority and creative repertory!
