Vancouver, BC—musica intima vocal ensemble announces a pop-up concert, voices rise: a homecoming. The concert marks musica intima’s return to Vancouver after forty hours of driving, nine concerts and a handful of workshops throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The concert celebrates the ensemble’s last tour of their lively 2013-14 season, and gives thanks to home audiences for their long-held support.

Voices rise promises to please choral enthusiasts and newcomers alike, with repertoire ranging from Renaissance to contemporary, tried-and-tested across Canada and beyond. The pop-up concert will also include musica intima’s Top Ten Touring Moments, giving Vancouver audiences a glimpse of life on the road. 

Proceeds from voices rise: a homecoming will fund a musica intima workshop with Dunbar Heights musicians in the upcoming season. “We want to help build sustainable community arts programming in Dunbar,” says Bess Albrecht, General Manager of musica intima. “It’s about keeping resources in the neighbourhood.”

Admission is by donation. Guests can RSVP here
