Presented by the Vancouver Chamber Choir
Under the direction of its new Artistic Director, Kari Turunen, the Vancouver Chamber Choir will present Seattle-based Eric Banks’ This Delicate Universe, a work akin to a choral symphony in scope. Its five movements for double choir, set to the poems of Constantine Cavafy, feature Arabic and Western scales, full sonorities, intriguing melodies and texts both in Greek and English to create a rich tapestry reflecting Cavafy’s world.
The first half of the concert also includes a guest appearance by the Vancouver Youth Choir, directed by Carrie Tennant.
