Wiecher Mandemaker and the Laurenscantorij are joined by numerous guest musicians to commemorate a joyful occasion: Fifty years ago, the post-war restoration works of the Laurenskerk (St. Lawrence Cathedral) were completed. Being also an integral part of the IVC2018 concert series, the special guest soloist this evening is Lawrence Power.
For more than 50 years, the ambitious Laurenscantorij performs choral repertoire of all musical styles. Conducted by Wiecher Mandemaker, this choir works closely together with the church organist and composer Hayo Boerema. The new version of Boerema's Messe solennelle, in which he added a solo viola voice to the ensemble, is premiered on this occasion (the original version was premiered in June 2017). The programme furthermore offers music by Grieg, Alwyn, Puccini and Schubert.
This concert is organized by our IVC2018 Partner, De Doelen Rotterdam.
