Dear friends,

Our hearts are heavy today, as musica intima must announce we have cancelled the remainder of our 2019/2020 season, including The Voice of the Sky. We look forward to new opportunities in the coming months to further foster connection through vocal music, especially in this time of social isolation.

musica intima as a society is committed to supporting the vocal artists we contract; we’re proud that we will be paying our singers despite the concert cancellation. We’ll be contacting subscribers and ticket holders in the coming days, and one option will be to join the society in our support of the Vancouver artists by donating your ticket costs back to the organisation. It’s well documented the stressors COVID-19 has put on the worldwide arts community, and every little bit helps.

Please feel free to contact our office with any questions (, and keep your eye on our website for updates on our future plans. Stay safe, stay healthy, and we hope to connect with you soon.

With the end of our 18/19 Season, our 19/20 season is only a few months away! We're pleased to announce our three-concert subscription series: connection.

amore/dolore - Themes of love and pain, and how the two interact will be explored through music of Lauridsen, Monteverdi, David Lang, and Sven-David Sandström.

sing lullaby - Grounded in the British choral tradition, this concert will feature seasonal music by Kenneth Leighton and Herbert Howells, as well as the newer generation of composers, such as Jonathan Dove and James MacMillan.

the voice of the sky - Highlighting the life-sustaining and sometimes terrible power of the sky, this concert includes the premier of a new set of pieces for musica intima by Owen Underhill, on texts of Antoni Gaudí.

Two weeks later - we're still in the afterglow of our successful primavera fundraiser! Thanks to your generous gifts, we were able to raise over $10,000 for the ensemble. On top of that, it was a beautiful concert, and our staff, audience, and volunteers were all captivated by the sound of the ensemble and alumni voices singing together. One of the musical highlights was Saint-Saëns' lush 'Calme des nuits' - a piece which captures the stillness so prevalent on the album clear.

Our thanks to Don Brooks, our board president, who generously donated the wine for the reception (at which we happily greeted so many of you), and of course, thanks to YOU, our loyal supporters, who made primavera possible!
