Octet caps Langley music school season

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 School’s Rose Gellert Hall on May 3 at 7:30 p.m.

“I have heard musica intima in performance on various occasions and each time was completely enthralled by their sound and presence,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS. “Their musicianship, singing and engagement are captivating. As a listener you can sit back and enjoy the ‘surround sound’ effect of this ensemble.”

Audiences will get a taste of choral classics with works by Eric Whitacre and Arvo Pärt, 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 Vancouver’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.

Call 604-534-2848 or visit www.langleymusic.com for tickets.

The hall is at 4899 207th St.
