Shaughnessy Heights United Church
Elektra Women's Choir
Two forces of Canadian classical music come together for a very special concert in Vancouver. Elektra Women’s Choir is delighted to collaborate for the first time with soprano Suzie LeBlanc in a program of music about music, ranging from Henry Purcell to the world premiere of a work by Vancouver composer and Elektra pianist Stephen Smith.
Christos Hatzis’ title work, featured on LeBlanc’s 2014 East Coast Music Awards Classical Recording of the Year, is a setting of a poem by Elizabeth Bishop. Internationally celebrated for her performances of early music, LeBlanc is a creative and curious musician, delving into a rich diversity of styles, cultures, and words. Expect the unexpected as Elektra and LeBlanc share the stage in this intimate and compelling program.
