As the Festival has had such a special relationship with the Victoria Children’s Choir for many years, we would like to make you aware of their final concert of the season this coming Monday, May 28, 7pm at the Alix Goolden Hall. Information and Tickets
We are fortunate to have in Victoria one of North America’s finest children’s choir, which last year won 1st place in their class at the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Festival, Vienna. Pacific Baroque Festival audiences will be familiar with these young singers’ remarkable perspective on baroque repertoire, most recently their February performance of Jean Gilles’ “Messe des Morts”.
This Monday, we encourage you to experience more of this extraordinary talent when the choir perform a broader range of repertoire in their season finale concert “Villages and Voices”: music from Canada to Bulgaria, Finland, China, the UK and beyond. You will realise what a treasure we have here in Victoria.
You might enjoy these recordings from the choir’s tour of Europe last summer.
