The Cantus Choir and the Jazz Guys took to the stage at the Stettler Alliance Church on Sunday, Dec. 6 as they mesmerized the crowds with a variety of music and musical styles.

Cantus Choir’s David Brunner opened the evening with ‘O Aula Nobilis’, which translates to, ‘O noble hall and pride of the school,/ Off all the halls and most outstanding,/ Adorned by the skills of many men,/ Echoing this day with the songs of young voices;/ We wish you well, we praise you;/ Prosper from generation to generation.

According to Gordon Moorlag, director of Cantus Choir, the song has a highly rhythmic, asymmetrical and angular character, with a bright, resonant and festive quality and has been a challenge for the choir and their accompanist, Betty Stokoe.

The Cantus Choir performed first and followed by a short break the Jazz Guys took to the stage with their popular numbers.
