“If music be the food of love, play on” ~Shakespeare

Vancouver, BC – Centuries after his work was penned, William Shakespeare’s writing continues to resonate with audiences and inspire composers from around the globe. Join musica intima as we delve into music from Shakespeare’s time – including 16th century pop music – as well as contemporary settings of the Bard’s poetry by composers from Canada, Hungary, Finland, and Sweden. Featuring Benjamin Britten’s Gloriana, and Vaughan Williams’ Three Shakespeare Songs (from our self-titled debut CD), where there’s a will is sure to delight and inspire.

“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 and has been nominated for two Juno awards.
