This Delicate Universe (CANCELLED)

May 8, 2020 @ 7:30 pm

In light of the continued restrictions imposed on public gatherings it is with great sadness that we must regrettably cancel this production. Subscribers will be contacted by the Vancouver Chamber Choir, and non-subscription ticket holders will be contacted directly by the Chan Centre box office.

With the Vancouver Youth Choir

We’re pleased to present the Canadian premiere of Seattle-based Eric Banks’ This Delicate Universe. The work is akin to a choral symphony in scope. Its five movements for double choir, set to the poems of Constantine Cavafy, feature Arabic and Western scales, full sonorities, intriguing melodies and texts both in Greek and English to create a rich tapestry reflecting Cavafy’s world. In the first half of the concert we’re joined by our Associate Choir, the brilliant Vancouver Youth Choir.
