One of Vancouverĺ─˘s favourite musical traditions: A Phonix Christmas

December 9, 2009 - (Vancouver, BC) ĺ─ý The countdown is on to one of Vancouverĺ─˘s favourite musical traditions: A PHOENIX CHRISTMAS, on Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 8:00PM.

Under the direction of Dr. Ramona Luengen, Vancouverĺ─˘s Phoenix Chamber Choir has become the most successful choir in the history of the CBC Choral Competition, and was the only North American adult-choir finalist in the 2007 prestigious International Let the Peoples Sing Competition. Last year Phoenix celebrated 25 years with 3 world premił«res of specially commissioned works and the Canadian premił«re of Joby Talbotĺ─˘s Path of Miracles.

A Phoenix Christmas offers an escape far removed from the hustle and bustle of the season, a magical, joy-filled evening of traditional carols and heartwarming music, both new and old, presented in the reflective ambiance that makes this a very special concert indeed. Come be moved by the strikingly original and heartrending portraits of the three kings by Jonathan Dove, the eloquent search for peace in I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day by Canadian composer Mark Sirett, and the sumptuous beauty of Morten Lauridsenĺ─˘s O magnum mysterium. Following a long and rewarding tradition of collaboration, the choir will once again be joined by Vancouverĺ─˘s gifted organist Roy Campbell.

Last yearĺ─˘s concert sold out. Order your tickets early!
