The TWU Chamber Choir is one of three performers at Season of Life + Landscape on Feb. 24.

Trio of choirs perform in Seasons of Life + Landscape

Presented by Trinity Western University, concerts features TWU Chamber Choir, the Canadian Chamber Choir and Vancouver Chamber Choir

Three celebrated choirs are converging to deliver one unforgettable evening of choral music in Langley.

On Friday, Feb. 24, Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture is presenting “Season of Life + Landscape,” an evening of choral performances by the TWU Chamber Choir, the Canadian Chamber Choir and Vancouver Chamber Choir.

The performance is part of TWU’s Faculty + Friends Recital Series, and highlights evocative story telling through song.

The choirs will present a range of works, from Brahms to local composers Jocelyn Morlock, Jon Washburn, Larry Nickel and TWU’s own Dr. David Squires.

The concert opens with Ben Duinker’s Materia ex nihilo, featuring TWU alumna Cathrie Yuen-Wong on marimba, and continues with composer Healey Willan’s choral masterpiece for double choir, An Apostrophe to the Heavenly Hosts. Known as the father of Canadian choral music, Willan composed the work in 1921 for the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and drew from Eastern Orthodox liturgy for its text. Jocelyn Morlock, composer-in-residence for the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, is represented on the program by the stunning work for choir and cello, Exaudi, which depicts the grief of losing a loved one. David Squires’ Sanctuary is a setting of text of assurance from Psalm 73.

The concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Fleetwood Christian Reformed Church, 9165 160 St., Surrey.

Admission is $20 (adults); $15 (seniors 60+); $10 (students).

Tickets are available through Eventbrite. For more details, visit twu.ca/samc or phone 604-513-2173.
