St Andrew's Wesley United Church | MAP
To open our 2022-23 season, the Vancouver Bach Choir is delighted to present two contemporary works, examining the challenges and opportunities of our modern world, both in nature and the environment as well as the emotional impact of self-isolation through the COVID-19 pandemic of the past two years. A new commission, ‘Memories of Self-Isolation’ by Canadian composer, Frank Horvat will be receive its world premiere. The Vancouver Bach Choir has collected texts from the community which provide lyrics to the new piece. The second piece, ‘Mass for the Endangered’ by American composer, Sarah Kirkland Snider will receive its Western Canada premiere. The piece takes the traditional Mass’s musical modes and applies them to concern for non-human life—animals, plants, and the environment. There is an appeal to a higher power—for mercy, forgiveness, and intervention.
Though the Vancouver Bach Choir has a 92 year history of presenting high quality choral programming, this concert goes beyond a traditional choral concert, blending beautiful music with an appeal to listeners to reflect on our modern world and act for positive change.
