Summer is gone! (7:30pm performance)

September 26, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Summer is gone

The first program of the Vancouver Chamber Choir’s 50th season will include many distinct voices: performer, poet and composer. In most cases, the poem came first and played a major role in shaping the music – much choral repertoire could indeed be described as sung poetry. Music by Romantic, post-Romantic and contemporary composers will highlight the diversity of our beloved word-music art form, presented alongside works set to Canadian and First Nations texts by Canadian composers Ramona Luengen and Andrew Balfour, with the world premiere performance of a new work by Stephen Chatman.
