Celebrating its 18th year, this musical prayer service portrays Christ's Passion through choral selections and the Gospels. Read more for additional information on this wonderful tradition. It is a lovely way to enter into the prayerful space of Holy Week in preparation for the joy of Easter. All are welcome.
Much like the tradition of the oratorio, our Easter Vigil is a dramatic work of vocal soloists, the choir and instrumental music that takes the audience on the journey from the Last Supper to the Resurrection. The performance is often compared to an opera, but unlike the opera, the oratorio does not have acting, costumes or scenery. Instead, it relies on the emotion in the text and music to tell its story effectively. This year's musical selections come from composers Marty Haugen, Andrea Ramsey, Zoltan Kodaly and Z. Randall Stroope.
The Canta Belles cordially invite you to this opportunity for prayer, reflection and beautiful music during this Lenten Season.
