Are you ready to get intimate? Internationally renowned for performances and recordings that sparkle with fresh insight and vibrant musicality, musica intima has earned a reputation as one of North America’s most exciting vocal chamber ensembles. Given its small size – 12 professional singers – musica intima will amaze you with its flexibility, enchant you with the power of its performances, and dazzle you with its fascinating interpretations.

But what makes this ensemble truly unique is that the singers rehearse and perform without a conductor. In rehearsal, they exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity; in performance, they engage the audience with a spontaneity and freshness all their own.

Joined by guest cellist Ari Barnes, musica intima’s program will include works by B.C. composers Jordan Nobles, Stephen Chatman, Leslie Uyeda, Jeffrey Ryan, Jocelyn Morlock, Ed Henderson, Tobin Stokes, Brian Tate, and David MacIntyre.

This concert is being recorded by CBC Radio 2 103.3 FM
