Cultural Concert de l'ensemble vocal In Octo Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

About

On Sunday 19 February 2023 from 17:00:00 in 17:30:00
Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (74400)

Remember: it was Saturday, July 2, 2022 in the beautiful baroque church ND de l'Assomption in Cordon, and Sunday, July 3 here in Chamonix, in the church of Saint-Michel: the Camerata du Mont-Blanc, a regular in our musical season since 2016, presented its new vocal ensemble for an interpretation of the Cantata BWV 150 "Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich" by JS Bach, which was acclaimed by the applause meter!

The vocal ensemble In Octo is a chamber choir of 8 singers composed of high level amateurs and professional singers, whose vocation is to allow the Camerata du Mont-Blanc to widen its repertoire to sacred music, and to propose musical alternatives to the public of our valleys in a specific a cappella repertoire going from the composers of the Renaissance to more contemporary styles like jazz or pop.

It is this time in a totally a capella repertoire that the vocal ensemble In Octo will make you travel successively in the vocal music of the Renaissance, before approaching pieces of jazz and borrowings from the contemporary Pop repertoire with composers like F Biebl,
A Brückner, W Byrd, S Claas, G Fauré, C Monteverdi, JM Pearsall, M Praetorius, JP Rameau, G Verdi, E Garner, M Gibb, S Paulus, J Runestad or O Gleilo.

A very eclectic program where everyone should find his happiness.
