VANCOUVER CHAMBER CHOIR CONCERT
WESNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2019
One of Canada’s national treasures in a very special concert on the farewell tour for the Vancouver Chamber Choir’s founding Artistic Director and Conductor, Jon Washburn, who retires this year. With a diverse repertoire and performing excellence, this twenty-voice choir has been performing across Canada and in every corner of the world for more than forty-five years. Boasting 32 recordings, the multi-award winning Vancouver Chamber Choir demonstrates the range of vocal expression from the majesty of choir and orchestra to the multi-hued palette of unaccompanied voices, to song to motet to oratorio and even opera. For this memorable Halifax concert, the Vancouver Chamber Choir will perform music including works by J.S. Bach, Claude Debussy, Benjamin Britten, Zoltán Kodály, and Imant Raminsh.
This concert opens with a special performance by Les Voix d’Acadie, a four-part francophone choir from Halifax.
