Kokopelli Choirs will return to the Winspear Centre stage to deliver their signature Stories concert at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, March 8. The annual concert’s theme provides a broad choral canvas to explore significant moments, perspectives and traditions through song. At the concert’s finale, voices from the seven ensembles will come together en masse to perform three contemporary First Nations compositions by Cree-Dene artist Sherryl Sewepagaham.
“We’re thrilled to return to the Winspear this year. Stories, without a doubt, is one of our most anticipated events by our audiences and choristers because of how unique and impactful the repertoire can be,” says artistic director Scott Leithead. “And getting to work with Sherryl as a guest artist has been such a privilege for us. It’s so rare that we get the opportunity to learn and engage with compositions like hers—we’re opening a new door.”
