Youth & Music 2019: Music’s Future

May 10, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

This biennial event — co-sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre BC Region — highlights the finalists and winners of our 14th Young Composers’ Competition, while Jon Washburn’s Vancouver Chamber Choir and Carrie Tennant’s Vancouver Youth Choir celebrate the wonderful combination of Youth & Music with music by Tavener, Rutter, Sandström and Washburn. There will be four newly-commissioned pieces from young professionals we’ve discovered. If you love music and you believe in young people, this concert will warm your heart.
