Early Music Vancouver presents the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge on March 26 at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts. Here are five reasons we think you should go:
Clad in their iconic red and white robes, has become one of the world’s most recognized all-male choral ensembles.
With the exception of just a few years, the choir has been singing services continuously for more than 500 years.
Every Christmas Eve, over 30 million people across the globe tune in to listen to the ensemble perform the legendary “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” service. This event has been broadcast by the BBC since 1928 and has helped to make the choir a household name all over the globe.
For their performance at the Chan Centre, the choir will perform works by European composers spanning four centuries including Byrd, Mundy, Gibbons, Ravel, Messianen, Fauré, and Durufle as well as Poulenc, Gabrieli, Purcell, Bruckner, Stanford, Whitlock and Brahms.
Early Music Vancouver will announce its highly anticipated 2017/2018 season at the concert.
