Early Music Vancouver (EMV) proudly presents the return of the Vancouver Bach Festival, July 30 – August 9, 2019 at Christ Church Cathedral and the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts. This year’s festival celebrates EMV’s 50th anniversary with performances by many of the top West Coast artists, and gifted artists from across Europe and North America. The 14-concert festival commences with EMV’s ensemble in residence, Les Boréades, in a spectacular two-night performance of J.S. Bach’s Complete Brandenburg Concertos. Further highlights include the Vancouver Bach Choir’s first-ever festival performance of Faure’s beloved Requiem; the return of acclaimed soprano Amanda Forsythe with Pacific MusicWorks, in a performance of Handel’s early cantatas; sopranos Suzie LeBlanc and Dorothee Mields’ dramatic interpretations of female composer Barbara Strozzi’s 17th century musings on love and loss; and David Jalbert’s performance of Shostakovich’s Preludes and a Bach Toccata. The festival will come to a grand conclusion with the presentation of Purcell’s Hail Bright Cecilia at the Chan Centre, starring six internationally renowned vocal soloists and the PBO led by Alexander Weimann.
