Vancouver, BC – musica intima’s first concert of the season takes its inspiration from the natural world, from which all life springs and to which all must eventually return. Join musica intima for a supernatural journey into the wild and into the unknown, as we leap into bold new territory with our programming while we pay homage to Nature’s oldest musical instrument: the human voice. Featuring R. Murray Schafer’s enchanting Magic Songs, American choral superstar Eric Whitacre’s Water Night, and Janequin’s Chants des Oiseaux.

“One of Canada’s most astonishing musical exports” ~ Raymond Tuttle | Fanfare Magazine


Internationally renowned for their warm and engaging stage presence, impeccable musicianship, and unique perspective on ensemble singing, musica intima has earned a reputation as Canada’s most exciting vocal ensemble. Twelve professional singers make up the personnel of musica intima. Lloyd Dykk of the Vancouver Sun says “the flexibility and agility that are a function of their small size is partly what makes them so exciting.” But what makes musica intima truly unique is that they rehearse and perform without a conductor. In rehearsal, they exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity. In performance, they engage the audience with a spontaneity and freshness all their own. musica intima’s latest cd into light (2010) won Classical Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, was nominated for two Juno awards, and received a 10-star review in BBC Music Magazine.
