Gregorian chant is still a seminal force in choral music, even a thousand years after Saint Gregory the Great lent it his name. Jon Washburn conducts the Vancouver Chamber Choir in an a cappella programme that traces choral repertoire back to the Gregorian chant on which it is based.
The Vancouver Chamber Choir is one of Canada’s national treasures, an outstanding professional vocal ensemble noted for its diverse repertoire and performing excellence. The choir has been performing since it was formed in 1971 by conductor Jon Washburn, who teaches a choral workshop on February 13th at ArtSpring. Over the years, the choir has sung over 3,000 performances of 350 pieces by 120 Canadian composers in addition to their extensive international repertoire.
Intermission reception hosted by Country Grocer.
