ADULT CHAMBER CHOIR FOR SINGERS AGED 55+
Conductor: Cathrie Yuen
Pianist: Kin Ming Wong
Cantabile is a new choir for singers aged 55 and up. As part of the Vancouver Bach Family of Choirs, Cantabile will perform at our Christmas with the Bach Choir and SummerSing concerts annually, as well as smaller concerts in the community. We are excited to build this choir from the ground up and look forward to our founding members having input into the structure of the choir, repertoire choices, and performance opportunities. Cantabile singers will also be invited to be part of select large-scale Vancouver Bach Symphonic Choir projects.
Visit our EVENTS page for listings of all upcoming concerts.
