August 19, 2010 | musica intima’s 2010/11 season confronts the dualities of the human experience.

Eras pass and perspectives change, but the experience of life remains unaltered. musica intima’s 2010/11 concert series explores these truths, uncovering the bigger issues in our hearts and showcasing music's ability to express hurt and to heal. This journey will feature traditional favourites, contemporary gems, and intima classics — including songs from our recently released Canadian choral CD, into light

“The most exciting small choir in the land”  ~ John Fraser | National Post 


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.
