We delight in welcoming Jon Washburn, Founder and Conductor Emeritus of the choir, to share the podium with Artistic Director Kari Turunen for this 50th anniversary tribute concert. The event not only pays tribute to fifty incredible years of choral performance, but nearly 400 works commissioned and premiered by the Vancouver Chamber Choir during that time. Viewers can look forward to a new commission by Vancouver composer Katerina Gimon as well as the Canadian premiere of a rarely-performed work by the late R. Murray Schafer. We are thrilled to be sharing this concert with you — recorded nearly 50 years to the day since our first official ticketed concert in November 1971!

Don't forget to download the digital program which contains all of the texts, translations and program notes. And be sure to watch until the very end of the video for a special encore not listed in the program!
