Chor Leoni presents Rejoice - a Christmas concert with brass

By BCcat on November 5, 2011 - 11:37am

Dec 20 2011 - 7:30pm
Dec 21 2011 - 9:30pm

The brilliance of brass will provide a glittering filigree of sound to Rejoice, this year’s Christmas offering by Vancouver’s renowned Chor Leoni Men’s Choir and Diane Loomer, C.M., Artistic Director. This brightness of brass will be juxtaposed with the beautiful a cappella singing that is a trademark of “the singing lions” in a program that explores both the joyfulness and the quiet expectation of the season.

“Spirited rhythms with brass and organ will lift the spirits while hushed a cappella singing brings memories of the wonder and miracle of Christmas,” explains Loomer.

“Christmastime comes with a wonderful sense of heightened anticipation as well as a longing for the warmth and intimacy of Christmases past,” she states. “With Rejoice we've designed a concert that we hope will meet those expectations.” A Touch of Brass, one of Vancouver’s premiere brass quintets, joins Chor Leoni for this concert and will be featured in works by Sweelinck, Sund, Zwozdesky, and Pinkham.
