SW = Standing Wave, VYC = Vancouver Youth Choir

Vancouver’s New Music champions, Standing Wave, present contemporary reflections on old themes, featuring new works by Harry Stafylakis and Matthew-John Knights. Jordan Nobles, Jared Miller and Jennifer Butler refract works by Debussy, Messiaen, Adams, and Morissette through a 21st Century lens. Missy Mazzoli’s classic Still Life with Avalanche will close out the program.

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 Katerina Gimon.

6:45PM – 7:05PM  Join VSO’s VP of Artistic Planning & Production, Misha Aster, Violinist and Co-Artistic Director of Standing Wave, Rebecca Whitling, and Vancouver Youth Choir’s Artistic Director, Carrie Tennant for a pre-concert chat about new music, new voices, young composers, and new music with young people.

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