AMAZING GRACE

By Phoenix on October 4, 2010 - 12:17pm

Oct 30 2010 - 8:01pm
Oct 30 2010 - 9:30pm

Vancouver's award-winning Phoenix Chamber Choir begins its 2010-2011 season with AMAZING GRACE, a concert of sacred choral music sung in the stunning acoustics of Holy Rosary Cathedral.

The programme opens with a rare Canadian performance of Ugin Praulins' MISSA RIGENSIS. Written in the spirit of the great Renaissance masses, its freshness of language evinces the Latvian composer's varied background as chorister, composer, rock musician, sound engineer and folk music collector. This accessible, visceral and completely personal work will utterly astound you.

Phoenix then joins forces with organist Roy Campbell and the Shaughnessy Heights United Church Choir for Faure's exquisitely intimate and serenely beautiful REQUIEM, followed by that most famous of all folk hymns, AMAZING GRACE, dazzingly arranged by the young headlining Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds.

Tickets: $25/20.

Holy Rosary Cathedral is located at the corner of Richards and Dunsmuir, Vancouver

All are invited to "Prosit" with Al Pichler and The Alpiners, (the Vancouver Alpen Club's House Band) as they put on their one-of-a-kind show of classic Bavarian music, dancing, chants, and unique brand of Bavarian/modern music. The Alpiners really like to interact and engage with the audience during their shows. So be prepared for some fun whacky antics by the Alpiners. Of course the traditional "Beerfest" contests will take place along with prizes and other fun. Sport your Lederhosen or Dirndl and party with your friends in true Bavarian fashion, doors open at 7:00 p.m. Of course traditional Oktoberfest food & beverages will be available for sale. For those of you who do not like beer (although we can't understand why) there is regular hard alcohol and wine for sale. Also, they will have Jaegermeister shooters. With the cover price guests receive an Oktoberfest keepsake. Cash only at the event. Stop by an ATM on the way to the club. There is an ATM at the club also.

DAVIE DAY STREET FESTIVAL

By WEBIA on August 23, 2010 - 2:58pm

Sep 11 2010 - 11:00am
Sep 11 2010 - 8:00pm

A carnival like atmosphere will see music, dance, food, circus, and heritage themed attractions highlighting the much anticipated Davie Day Street Festival. Four blocks of Davie Street from Burrard to Broughton Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic all day on Saturday, September 11th.

This exciting family day, named after former Premier Davie, will centre around our kick-off this year for the upcoming birthday - Vancouver 125. An impressive heritage zone will feature old-fashioned lollipops, a photographer taking turn-of-the-century pictures, The Sylvia Hotel, and lots to see and do including animals and blacksmith demonstrations in an authentic historical setting.

In the KidZone there will be circus demonstrations, and you can climb aboard an ambulance, or the fun SS Discovery. Our Doggy Zone will round out the attractions with a guest artist, Eric Ginsburg from New York City, who will create whimsical and waggish portraits of man's best friend.

Stitch (an Urban Vessel production)

By VNMS on April 6, 2010 - 2:06pm

May 1 2010 - 8:00pm
May 1 2010 - 9:30pm

@ EDAM (303 E. 8th Ave)

Music by Juliet Palmer | Text by Anna Chatterton
Performed by Christine Duncan, Patricia O’Callaghan & Neema Bickersteth

From the abuse of the sweatshop to the fantasy of costume and the empowerment of sewing-it-yourself, the sewing machine has been a force for exploitation and liberation since its invention in the 19th century. Anchored in the sounds and rhythms of sewing, Stitch uncovers the emotional layers of the relationship between woman and barely-tamed machine. The performance will also feature a companion piece created specially by community members to accompany the Vancouver presentation of Stitch.

“A rogue brace of creative spirits cuts through the couture and sweeps us straight into a sewing sweatshop in Stitch. Billed as ‘an a cappella opera for three women and three sewing machines,’ it crosses so many genres as to be in a category of its own… Imagine an opera presented outside a theatre, without a stage or orchestra. It doesn’t seem like opera at all – until you realise how much a librettist, composer and three vocalists can accomplish with the simplest of means. That’s an art.”
—Toronto Star

Tickets $20 regular, $15 student/senior available from Tickets Tonight (ticketstonight.ca/604.684.2787, surcharges apply) and at the door
