Prime Voci

The top two ensembles of Seattle Girls’ Choir will perform advent Lessons and Carols at Holy Rosary Church in West Seattle (4210 SW Genesee St., 98116 http://www.holyrosaryseattle.org). An elegant prelude to Christmas,  this wonderful English tradition combines lessons read and carols sung by the young women of the choir.

Prime Voci, made up of high school women from throughout the Puget Sound region and conducted by Artistic Director Jacob Winkler, recently recorded a new CD of holiday music at Holy Rosary entitled Carmina Angelorum: Songs for Treble and Harp. They will be joined by Cantamus, an ensemble of middle school girls conducted by Assistant Artistic Director, Alex Gagiu. Three performers of Cantamus live in West Seattle: 8th grader Elizabeth Baer attends Hamilton Middle School, 8th grader Emma Strevey attends Pathfinder K-8, and Our Lady of Guadalupe 8th grader Gena Hurlocker.

Proceeds will go to Toys for Tots

Seattle Girls’ Choir Presents CARMINA ANGELORUM in Everett, Sunday Dec. 9

CARMINA ANGELORUM: Songs for Harp and Treble Voices

PV2011 - smaller

Sunday, December 9th, 2012 – 4:00pm
Trinity Episcopal, Everett

General Admission $12, Students/Seniors and Alumnae $8

Join the Seattle Girls’ Choir’s premier ensemble Prime Voci (under the direction of Jacob Winkler) and harpist Juliet Stratton for a concert of music for harp and treble voices.  We begin with Benjamin Britten’s landmark A Ceremony of Carols, a haunting setting of 15th and 16th century Middle English texts.  Other highlights include John Rutter’s beautiful Dancing Day, a setting of traditional English carols, and Kirke Mechem’s Seven Joys of Christmas, a fun and lively rendition of carols from around the globe.

The delicate and intricate textures of the harp are a perfect complement to the angelic voices of the girls of Prime Voci.  We hope you join us for an evening of exceptionally beautiful music to celebrate the holidays with Carmina Angelorum (songs of angels).

These concerts coincide with the release of our fifth commercial recording, Carmina Angelorum: Songs for Harp and Treble Voices available for purchase HERE.
