First Baptist Church
In their first full-length concert, Aella will be presenting the entirety of 'Snow Angel', a 5-movement work for choir, piano, percussion, narrators and cello written by Ontario composer Sarah Quartel. The concert will also feature the premiere performance of 'A Little Snow Was Here and There' — a beautiful new work written for Aella by Montreal-based composer Matthew C. Lane — as well as music by Canadian composers Stephen Hatfield and David MacIntyre. Rounding out a diverse program will be music by the Tragically Hip, Bulgarian, South Africa, and Japanese folk songs, and Michael Bojesen's stunning 'Eternity.'
