Christmas at the Chan Centre
Award-winning conductor Dr. Joel Tranquilla, Director of Choral Activities for Trinity Western University, brings together five choirs and full orchestra in an exquisite program featuring Christmas music from around the world. This popular annual event features a nativity cantata, traditional carols, audience singalongs, and recent works by Canadian composers.
A special treat this year is an appearance by the Vancouver Chamber Choir. As part of their year-long professional choral residency at TWU’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture, this world-class ensemble will perform alongside the school’s students and alumni at this and other concerts throughout the SAMC season.
The annual Christmas at the Chan Centre concert is a collaborative gift to the wider community from the Chan family, the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, and Trinity Western University, and is made possible through the generous assistance of the Chan Endowment Fund of the University of British Columbia.
Trinity Western University’s choral program has been recognized internationally, collaborating with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Vancouver Chamber Choir, performing on CBC Radio and at Carnegie Hall, and touring to China, Korea, Eastern Europe and the Ukraine. For young musicians interested in studying at TWU, there is a series of Preview Weekends on campus throughout the year. Find more information at twu.ca/visit.
