Our Next Event Is:
THE CHRISTMAS STORY Carols & Readings of the Season

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
8:00 p.m. Friday, 16th December 2016

British Columbia Girls Choir
Fiona Blackburn, conductor
Vancouver Chamber Choir
Kevin Zakresky, conductor


Description
Christmas time is carol time, too. The Christmas spirit can be expressed in so many ways: gently, robustly, ceremonially, intimately, poetically, grandly, angelically, rustically, liturgically or by the simplest song or phrase. Kevin Zakresky leads the Vancouver Chamber Choir in a banquet of seasonal music, with a cameo appearance from Fiona Blackburn and the British Columbia Girls Choir. There's Renaissance Christmas music by Palestrina, de Rore, Lassus and Willaert; a French touch from Francis Poulenc; and many familiar carols from your favourite composers and arrangers all telling the most beloved story of the ages!
