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: City on Saturday July 16 is at Pyatt Hall, the acoustically perfect jewel box concert hall at the VSO School of Music. Fully wheelchair accessible and complete with bar, it is the perfect place for our post-concert mingler. Please join us!
The first performance (REFUGE: Sanctuary, July 15 at 7:30pm) is at Vancouver's Christ Church Cathedral.
