Elmer Iseler Singers Perform at Gala Opening of The Festival of the Sound
Meg Wallace Photography Studio
Guy Few performs on the trumpet with the Elmer Iseler Singers, Penderecki String Quartet, Bob Mills on double bass and conducted by Lydia Adams during the Festival of The Sound's opening concert Saturday evening.
“Saturday night was devoted to the official Gala Opening Concert of the 2016 Festival… The Elmer Iseler Singers then took the stage for their annual appearance at the Festival. This year, they performed a number of pieces requiring assorted instrumental ensembles. James Campbell and the Penderecki Quartet appeared again, as did Guy Few on piano and trumpet. They were joined by Bob Mills on double bass. A Bach cantata movement with flashy trumpet solo from Few, songs by Glick and by Gary Kulesha, and a choral work by Parry Sound composer Eleanor Daley were all well performed and well received.
The highlight for many of the audience was the simple, gentle rendition of Mozart’s well- known and well-loved Ave Verum Corpus. With the string quartet playing quietly with mutes, and the choir matching them in the gentlest of tones, the total effect was both awe-inspiring and beautiful beyond any comparison.“ [Quotes above are from parrysound.com article dated 24 July 2016]
