A Wilderness of Sea

March 13, 2020 @ 7:30 pm

A Wilderness of Sea

With the Elmer Iseler Singers

Two of Canada’s premier ensembles take the stage together — an event not to be missed! The broad theme is the sea and the Vancouver Chamber Choir will present two works on that theme. The choir will also celebrate the arrival of spring with a brand new major composition by US-born Alex Freeman. Both choirs will join forces in two magical works: Healey Willan’s An Apostrophe to the Heavenly Hosts and all-too-long neglected Meren virsi (The Hymn of the Sea) from 1909 by Toivo Kuula.
