The repertoire of the vocal ensemble musica intima ranges from early to contemporary music, tried and tested across Canada and beyond.
The members bring their talent to the stage of the Langley Community Music Schoolâ€™s Rose Gellert Hall on May 3 at 7:30 p.m.
â€œI have heard musica intima in performance on various occasions and each time was completely enthralled by their sound and presence,â€ said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS. â€œTheir musicianship, singing and engagement are captivating. As a listener you can sit back and enjoy the â€˜surround soundâ€™ effect of this ensemble.â€
Audiences will get a taste of choral classics with works by Eric Whitacre and Arvo PÃ¤rt, contemporary Canadian marvels with Derek Healey and Ed Henderson, and even a pop song or two.
Founded in 1992, musica intima has become an integral part of Vancouverâ€™s cultural fabric.
But what makes musica intima truly unique is that they rehearse, perform and function as a collective. In rehearsal, they exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity. In performance, they engage the audience with a spontaneity and directness all their own.
This show is the finale of the LCMS concert season.
Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students.
