Vancouver Chamber Choir
Jon Washburn, conductor
Five Symposium Conductors
Stephen Smith, piano

There is more to the madrigal than just fa-la-las, as this concert - the culmination of our 31st National Conductors’ Symposium - will demonstrate. Led by Jon Washburn and five other conductors from the week-long symposium, the Choir will sing favourite madrigals from England, Italy, Germany and France. And there will be madrigal-like music from more modern composers to add additional variety to the programme. All in all... a delightful cornucopia of choral song.
