Presented by the UBC School of Music
Graeme Langager, chorus master
The University Singers and UBC Choral Union present Britten, Hymn to st. Cecilia and works by Haydn, Palestrina, and Whitacre.
A choir of approximately 40 mixed voices, this ensemble performs major works of the choral repertoire appropriate to its size. Winner of several awards, including the C.B.C. National Choral Competition and the B.B.C. International Choral Competition, the choir usually tours British Columbia and occasionally further afield, including European tours.
U.B.C.’s largest choir, approximately 150 voices, presents concerts of major choral literature from the 16th through the 20th centuries, including the premieres of compositions by student, alumnus and faculty composers. The choir also combines forces with the University Singers and Symphony Orchestra to perform works from the oratorio repertoire.
