The Olympic season leads us to reflect on the diverse peoples of the world and their many rich musical cultures. Our new Assistant Conductor John William Trotter draws on the folk heritage of the European continent, Scandinavia and the British Isles for this concert of Songs of the People. Several great composers - the Hungarian Kodály, Frenchman Poulenc, German Brahms, Englishman Vaughan Williams and Wilhelm Stenhammar (a Swede setting Danish words) - provide their insight and perspective on the folk traditions of their respective regions. Also a few Italian madrigals and bonus folksongs, just to round out John’s first full concert with the Choir. Tickets availble at Ticketmaster ( / 604-280-3311)
