Chifuru Matsubara, conductor of the Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus, is our guest conductor. He leads the Vancouver Chamber Choir in a fascinating programme of choral music from northern realms: Japan, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Latvia and Canada. There are familiar names like Jean Sibelius (Finland) and Edvard Grieg (Norway), new ones like Michio Mamiya (Japan), Per Nørgård (Denmark) and Peteris Plakidis (Latvia). Plus the first Vancouver Chamber Choir performance of R. Murray Schafer’s evocative Imagining Incense.
