We are thrilled to announce the first concert of our new Family Series "once upon 8 times".
A light-hearted programme of choral pieces for 4-8 singers explicitly designed for a family audience.
A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon together as a family, the Voces Boreales octet (VB8) will present a variety of fun, popular and exciting choral harmonisations from across the ages!
There will be rounds and canons, works from the classical choral repertoire and some brief explanations and demonstrations. The concert will also focus on the French and Quebec song tradition, including songs by Leonard Cohen, Charles Trenet, and Gilles Vigneault, plus the world première performance of Casi Alba by French-Quebec composer Mael Oudin.
Interesting anecdote: we discovered a new composer, Mael Oudin, through our 2023 Emerging Composers Workshop, and we are so pleased that his work will premiere at this concert.
So gather the family and come and join us for a beautiful Sunday afternoon in June 2024.
