june 6 | requiem for peace | jubilate vocal ensemble

It was a doctoral thesis, a labour of love and a universal plea to lay down arms. Now for the first time, Requiem for Peace will be presented by Vancouver’s Jubilate Vocal Ensemble under the direction of its composer, Dr. Larry Nickel.

Requiem for Peace 
Saturday, June 6; 8:00 p.m.
Shaughnessy Heights United Church: 1550 West 33rd Ave. Vancouver.
Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $15 for students.
Tickets will be available at the door or online at

The 16-part Requiem for Peace communicates a mixture of grief, terror, loss and hope through poetry and prose of multiple cultures and 13 different languages. But its melodic nature and universal theme of forgiveness and reconciliation can be easily understood and enjoyed even by first-time guests at a choral concert.

Jubilate will be joined by a chamber orchestra and the Oculus Chamber Choir, whose Director Ben Ewert is assistant conductor and bass singer in Jubilate. Soloists are Robyn Driedger Klassen, Grace Chan and John Nickel; pianist is Dr. Betty Suderman.
