Serenity the music of Ola Gjeilo
with guests Calvin Women's Chorale and Ola Gjeilo, composer/pianist

Covenant Fine Arts Center Auditorium
Calvin College

The Calvin Alumni Choir has the wonderful opportunity of hosting a residency of one of today’s most sought-after composers of choral music. Ola Gjeilo, a native of Norway, trained at the famed Juilliard School of Music, is an internationally-acclaimed composer and pianist who also brings the unique skill of improvising on the piano while performing with choirs. This residency will culminate in a public concert of his music, mostly choral and some instrumental. Greatly interested in film, his music draws much inspiration from movies and cinematic music, creating a stunning lyricism beloved by choirs and audiences all over the world.

The service will be based on Micah 6:8 with guest conductor, Sean Ivory.
