musica intima's popular holiday concert returns to New Westminster

November 19, 2013 | musica intima's popular holiday concert returns to New Westminster

Vancouver, BCmusica intima is proud to announce the return of its cherished Christmas concert to New Westminster, made possible by a co-sponsorship from local companies Seymour Evancic Gardner & Associates and Stuart Crown & Company Inc. The concert will take place on December 14th at Knox Presbyterian Church.

“I love performing here,” says Melanie Adams, who runs a voice studio in New Westminster and is currently musica intima’s longest-serving member. “Knox Presbyterian Church is close and intimate, and a beautiful building to sing in. People who find it more difficult to get into Vancouver have a chance to hear music by one of the country’s best ensembles. After the Knox Christmas concerts of the past two years, people have told me that they really appreciate our making the effort to come out here. “

The concert, light for the Child, is a radiant setting of the birth of Christ. While the program includes timeless holiday classics such as Benjamin Britten’s Jeus, as thou art our saviour, it brings Canada’s contemporary composers to the forefront. A rare selection of works by Kristopher Fulton, Michael Conway Baker (BC Hall of Fame, Order of BC) and JUNO-winning John Burge speak to creation, rebirth and healing. 

Come celebrate with musica intima in this time of great anticipation as they sing to give “light for the traveler, light for the still dark night, light for the Child.”

ABOUT MUSICA INTIMA VOCAL ENSEMBLE:

“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. Lloyd Dykk of the Vancouver Sun said “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.
