September 24, 2013 | musica intima premiers two new commissions in this land

Vancouver, BCmusica intima vocal ensemble launches its 2013-14 concert season with this land on October 26th and 27th.  Join musica intima for a spiritual journey through the natural world as they give voice to the pattering rain, the swarming fog, the shattering ice.

This concert premiers commissions by BC composers Ed Henderson and Imant Raminsh in collaboration with the Stó:lō Nation. Using texts from Naxaxalhts'i's retelling of an ancient transformation story, these pieces remind us of the fundamental threads that link us to our natural surroundings. Naxaxalhts'i, also known as Albert (Sonny) McHalsie, is the Cultural Advisor for the Stó:lō Research and Resource Management Centre.

“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.
