WASSAIL (Dec. 16 – matinée)

December 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am

We extend a warm seasonal invitation for listeners to join us at WASSAIL, our 2021 holiday concert featuring English carols both old and new, as well as a performance of Benjamin Britten’s masterwork A Boy was Born. Britten was only a teenager when he wrote A Boy was Born, an ambitious cycle of variations on a simple melody that guides listeners through many styles and characters from breathtaking beauty to explosive joy. The music showcases Britten’s precocious talent, skilled beyond his years. We hope you can join us for this evening of connection and seasonal celebration!

IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE IS SUBJECT TO PROVINCIAL RESTRICTIONS ON MASKING, AUDIENCE CAPACITY AND VACCINATION STATUS.

 

PLEASE NOTE: An additional evening performance is being offered on Friday, Dec. 17 at 7:30pm at Pacific Spirit United Church. Click the green button to purchase tickets.
