World Premiere of what happens now?
music by Michael Park, text by Ray Hsu
Drawing on works as diverse as Meredith Monk’s Churchyard Entertainment from Book of Days, Leonard Bernstein’s Mass, and Isabella Leonarda’s Ave Regina Ceolorum, Vancouver’s summer chorus of queer classically trained singers presents REFUGE, an exploration of both found and created safety and shelter.
Under the direction of Mark Reid, Cor Flammae’s REFUGE includes premiers of new compositions by Vancouver composers Shane Raman and Michael Park, plus works by Peter Tchaikovsky, Joan Szymko, Stephen Smith, Rodney Sharman, Dominique Phinot, and more, presented in two spectacular venues.
REFUGE: Sanctuary on Friday July 15 is at Vancouver’s historic and beautifully restored Christ Church Cathedral. This Anglican cathedral is a safe, welcoming and positive space for LGBTQI people, and is both air conditioned and fully wheelchair accessible.
The concert repeats on Saturday July 16 at the VSO School of Music’s Pyatt Hall (7:30pm).
