Listen to Poulenc’s Gloria!

As we head toward our 60th anniversary season in 2021-2022, we are visiting Da Camera’s CD recordings.

Enjoy this stunning work from Da Camera’s 1995 album, “Gloria: Music of the French Cathedral.” Recorded under the direction of Mel Unger with absolutely masterful accompanying by Lorretta Dueck, Poulenc’s Gloriais a refreshingly unique work featuring stunning passages for soprano soloist, spicy harmonies, and exuberant rhythms that (as Poulenc explained to those who found them irreverent) were inspired by the frescoes of the fifteenth-century master Benozzo Gozzoli, which depict angels sticking out their tongues, and by some Benedictine monks he had see playing soccer.

Salisbury Greenhouse Gift Card Fundraiser

Spring has arrived and our gift card fundraiser is in full swing! We have placed our first order and will be placing another order toward the end of April. Our final order will be placed in mid-May so folks will have their gift cards in advance of the May long weekend when we’ll all be out in our gardens!

Remember, you can purchase gift cards in denominations of $25, $50, $100 and $250. They do not expire and can be used year-round for bedding plants, baskets, garden tools, soil and compost, shrubs and trees, perennials, all items in Salisbury’s amazing gift shop including home décor, furniture, clothing, and jewelry and much, much more. The gift cards are not eligible for landscaping services.

Place your gift card order through info@dacamerasingers.ca A member of the choir will contact you to confirm that your order has been received and to obtain a mailing address. As an extra convenience, Salisbury Greenhouse can mail the gift cards directly to you! Please note that you will need to pay in advance for the gift cards by using the eTransfer payment method to Da Camera Singers.

This is a great opportunity for us to earn some funds for our choir! We all love beautiful gardens – yes? The more gift cards we sell, the more the choir will benefit. We thank you for your interest in our fundraising efforts and look forward to your participation!  Happy Spring!
