Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra is your invitation into the season as the choir celebrates the approaching holidays with music ranging from ancient carols to brand new commissions from Ed Henderson and Tim Corlis.

The featured work is William Mathias’ lyrical setting of Salvator Mundi, a Christmas carol sequence based on seven carols from the 15th – 17th centuries. Mathias was considered one of the greatest of Welsh composers, whose technical sophistication never got in the way of his love of lyrical vocal lines and the sense of text, occasion and emotional spirit of his music. Salvator Mundi calls for “piano 4 hands” and we are honoured to welcome the VSO’s Maestro, Bramwell Tovey, to share the piano bench with Elektra’s own Stephen Smith.

Artistic Director, Morna Edmundson, has gathered some of Vancouver’s top musicians to join in the festivities and share their musical gifts. Elektra is pleased to welcome composer and guitarist, Ed Henderson, Jodi Proznick on acoustic bass, and Zing! Children’s Choir directed by Lisa Reimer to Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra.

Expect familiar carols to sing along with, new favourites, seasonal readings and treats for the kids, and of course, the brilliant singing of Elektra to help launch your holiday preparations!
