musica intima performs and operates on the stolen territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are continually working towards redress through intentional programming and fruitful relationship building and collaborations with Indigenous artists.
From grass-roots beginnings to international renown, pushing the boundaries of traditional choral performance and new perspectives on ensemble singing has made musica intima one of Canada’s most unique vocal ensembles. A shared leadership model allows the singers to exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity, leading to dynamic performances where the ensemble engages with the audience directly and spontaneously.
"A polished, well-balanced ensemble of real distinction"
