ST. ANDREW'S-WESLEY UNITED CHURCH
CO-PRESENTED WITH THE VANCOUVER CHAMBER CHOIR
Our core values of collaboration mean we’re always excited to work with our friends in the local community, like the Chamber Choir, and new friends from across the country, like superstar recorder player Vincent Lauzer. This is a rare chance to hear the best of the best singing together - Vancouver’s two professional ensembles joining forces!

In Winter's House
In this season of warmth and tradition, our connections to you and to each other create a beautiful intimacy. You might have joined us in the past thirty years of concerts in cathedrals, and this year you’ll experience those same feelings on the festive Granville Island, in a space accessible to all!

ST. JAMES COMMUNITY SQUARE
Expect the same casual and slightly unhinged concert-going experience, featuring shorter sets of music with ample time to grab a drink at the bar - and yes, we listened to your feedback: this year, the popcorn will be free! Featuring Sharon Minemoto on keyboards, Jodi Proznick on bass, and Kate Johnson on drums.
FEBRUARY 12, 2024
This is the sixth iteration of our emerging composers program, this year co-presented by the Canadian Music Centre, and this year we’re thrilled to be welcoming Leslie Uyeda as Mentor-Composer. A crucial part of the education program is the final showcase - we find such joy in sharing the new sounds created by the composers of the future!
APRIL 20, 2024
Joelysa’s immensely personal and beautiful works are fulfilling both to sing and to experience - we’re excited to devote a concert to her music, as well as commission her to create a new piece just for us. We’ve performed her heart-wrenching The First Stage twice, and this concert will feature the world premiere of her new arrangement of The Fifth Stage for both, we’ll be joined by Mark Haney on bass, Martin Fisk on marimba, and Mark Takahashi McGregor on alto flute.

MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY, UBC*
Ḵi’mola is a program designed to highlight the importance of truly sharing and listening well to each other. Entering with the intention to learn and allow each other to take part in the leadership and responsibility of the event. No traditional feast is ever undertaken by just one person. The entire community pitches in with their talent, energy and good will to share in the creation of the feast. This builds community and is a wonderful way to learn and grow together. Music is the perfect platform for such an undertaking and we are creating a sound feast to share with our audience while we learn to work together in good and lasting relationships.
