DON’T MISS CANADA’S MOST EXCITING VOCAL ENSEMBLE – MUSICA INTIMA – AT THE ROSE GELLERT HALL MAY 3
LANGLEY, BC – Langley Community Music School (LCMS) welcomes vocal ensemble musica intima for the finale of the Rose Gellert Hall season on May 3, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Internationally renowned for their warm and engaging stage presence, impeccable musicianship, and unique perspective on ensemble singing, musica intima is sure to please music lovers, with repertoire ranging from early to contemporary music, tried and tested across Canada and beyond.
“I have heard musica intima in performance on various occasions and each time was completely enthralled by their sound and presence,” says Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS. “Their musicianship, singing and engagement are captivating. As a listener you can sit back and enjoy the ‘surround sound’ effect of this ensemble.”
Audiences will get a taste of choral classics with works by Eric Whitacre and Arvo Pärt, contemporary Canadian marvels with Derek Healey and Ed Henderson, and even a pop song or two. Join musica intima for an evening of exploration, inspiration, and beauty – a concert with something for everyone.
Founded in 1992, musica intima has become an integral part of Vancouver’s cultural fabric. 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, perform and function as a collective. In rehearsal, they exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity. In performance, they engage the audience with a spontaneity and directness all their own.
The Rose Gellert Hall concert season is proudly sponsored by Hub Insurance.
Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students. Call 604.534.2848 or visit www.langleymusic.com for tickets. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 Street in Langley.
