Join the Vancouver Chamber Choir for the opening concert of our 43rd concert series. The feature work is Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s fiery Romancero gitano, based on Spanish poems of Frederico García Lorca for which we are joined by our special guest artist – German guitarist Heiko Ossig. We celebrate the 70th birthday of BC composer Imant Raminsh with Latvian Folk Songs and explore other European colours through great choral music and poetry of Debussy and Charles d’Orléans, Hindemith and Rainer Maria Rilke, Rautavaara and even more García Lorca.
