CANADIAN VOICES Music Shore to Shore

Vancouver Chamber Choir ~ Pacifica Singers
Jon Washburn and Kevin Zakresky, conductors

Hop on the tour bus with the Vancouver Chamber Choir as we visit all the musical regions of Canada, singing some of the wonderful choral inventions of many Canadian composers.

It’s a cornucopia of delights, as we sample the fruits of Canada’s masters - Henderson, Willan, Daunais, Somers, Eaton, Beckwith; the latest talented generation - Emery, Teehan, Martin; and savour the diversions of Canadian folklore.

Jon Washburn and Vancouver Chamber Choir bring these Canadian voices to life and they’re joined in part by their associate ensemble, Pacifica Singers, with their conductor Kevin Zakresky.
