Huge choir brings big voices to town

Choral music fans, take note!

On Thursday, Oct. 29, starting at 8 p.m., you can hear close to 150 Dutch voices in concert as the Grootkoor [Grand Choirs] Project brings its show to the Christian Reformed Church in Duncan.

This enormous chorus is doing a Canadian tour during this, the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands in the Second World War. With a shared history and a solid foundation for friendship, the stage was set for a grand musical occasion in both countries.

For more than a quarter century, the Grand Choirs have made their mark on the Dutch choir scene. Every year, they organize choir projects in every Dutch province, concluded by a great concert. These concerts — often accompanied by famous international soloists and orchestras — take place in colossal concert halls and churches.

The Dutch Grand Choirs have a special sound, produced under the direction of their two conductors, Etty van der Mei and Nan van Groeningen.

Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. Admission is by a suggested donation of $15 per person at the door.
