Join us for the Acadia University's Spring Concert. Featuring the fantastic multi-movement work Jubilate Deo by Dan Forrest

Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. Movements include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, Song of the Earth (untexted), and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!”

Featuring university organist John Scott along with guest soloists and instrumentalists, this performance is sure to be a memorable one!

All are welcome.  Admission $10 (FREE for Students).  Mask required.
