Archdiocese of Vancouver teams up with Vancouver Chamber Choir

If you can only attend one Christmas concert this year -- besides your children's -- this is the one.

The Archdiocese of Vancouver is joining with the Vancouver Chamber Choir to sponsor Magnificat! A Festive 40th Anniversary Christmas.

The Dec. 3 event will feature the archdiocese and the VCC teaming up to co-sponsor an evening of solo, orchestral, and choir music.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the VCC, the Orpheum Theatre will be alive with the heavenly sounds of the world premiere of a newly-commissioned Magnificat (Song of Mary) by leading Canadian composer Stephen Chatman, a music composition teacher at the UBC School of Music. In addition, Vivaldi's Magnificat will be performed.

Martha Guth
The concert will feature the VCC, the Pacifica Singers, soprano Martha Guth, the VCC Alumni Chorus, and the Vancouver Chamber Orchestra under conductors Jon Washburn and John William Trotter.

Details and on-line purchase information here.

(Two years ago the archdiocese partnered with the VCC for a performance of Handel’s Messiah, which turned out to be a great success. No question this one will continue the tradition.)
