My Heart Sings
Debussy, Purcell, Rheinberger, Weelkes and more

The award-winning UBC University Singers and Choral Union present MY HEART SINGS, a collection of music inspired by the deepest emotions of the heart – love and loss, grief and pure joy. Featured works include compositions by Debussy, Purcell, Rheinberger, and Weelkes, as well as newer works by Canadian, American and Australian composers.

University Singers

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.

Choral Union

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.
