Kira Fondse was an apprentice with Pacific Theatre last season, and a glorious singer. You may remember her from Christmas Presence, and she'll be part of my production of THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL at the end of this season. Kira is now singing with one of Vancouver's pre-eminent professional choirs, Musica Intima, and tells me that their series of Christmas concerts are pure Soul Food, with a repertoire of songs that all connect with the nativity. She says it's been an extraordinary experience, being immersed in the beauty of this music, and the events surrounding the birth of Christ.
"O Radiant Dawn, shine on those who dwell in darkness..."
Grounded in the British choral tradition, this concert features seasonal music from Herbert Howells and Kenneth Leighton, as well as the newer generation of English composers, such as Jonathan Dove and James MacMillan. Also on the program are works by Canadian composers Kristopher Fulton and John Burge. Join us for the lush warmth of the Christmas season!
