Tuesday, October 26, 2010 | musica intima lights up the Western Canadian Music Awards

Vancouver, BC – musica intima is thrilled to announce that its 2010 album into light has been named Classical Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. The awards show, held in Kelowna last Sunday, honoured intima’s fifth and latest release on the ATMA label, into light, which is a
celebration of all-Canadian compositions.

musica intima also performed with other nominees on Saturday night at the Classical Music Showcase Concert, held in Kelowna’s Rotary Arts Centre, where the ensemble’s appearance was hailed as a “festival highlight” by the Vancouver Province.

Praise for into light in Fanfare Magazine: “This is music and these are performances that one could lose oneself in” … “By the time this CD is over, you will feel that you have gone on an eventful journey through many emotional states and physical environments” … “If you want to be amazed, give it a try.”

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. The twelve singers rehearse, perform and function as a collective; in rehearsal they self-direct, exchanging ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity. In addition to into light being named Classical Album of the Year at the WCMAs, musica intima has been voted Best Local Classical Vocal Ensemble in the Georgia Straight’s Best of Vancouver Awards in both 2009 and 2010. They also took home the gold in the WestEnder’s 2009 Best of the City Awards, for Best Choral Group.
