Vancouver’s New Music champions, Standing Wave, present an eclectic mix of contemporary reflections on old themes, featuring Nicole Lizee, Missy Mazzoli, and Jennifer Butler’s re-imagination of one of Messiaen’s seminal works inspired by the call of birds, commissioned by Standing Wave as part of their 20C Remix project.

The Award-winning Vancouver Youth Choir, under their inspiring Artistic Director, Carrie Tennant, has performed in concert halls around the world in repertoire ranging from medieval Gregorian Chant to new commissions. Here, they contrast one of the best-known choral works of the Renaissance, Palestrina’s Sicut Cervus, with a setting of the same text by contemporary Estonian composer Part Uusberg on a program also featuring vibrant integration of voice and movement from Vancouver’s Katherina Gimon.

Join us for a pre-concert chat 45 minutes before concert time and a post-concert Q&A immediately following.

This concert is part of the 2020 VSO New Music Festival: (re)creations.
