Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir — Massey Theatre @ Massey Theatre
Dec 3 @ 2:30 pm
Handel’s Messiah — Kay/Meek @ Kay Meek Centre
Dec 3 @ 3:00 pm

A KAY MEEK + Early Music Vancouver Presentation
Grosvenor Theatre

Featuring the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Vancouver Cantata Singers, and outstanding soloists, Handel’s Messiah is a glorious piece of music of great history and importance. The work took Handel a brief 24 days to complete, and was, according to him, a product of divine inspiration. This led Handel to leave an inscription at the end of the score: “To God alone the glory”.

Join us with conductor Alexander Weimann and Vancouver Cantata Singers artistic director Paula Kremer for a presentation of Handel’s greatest known work in the intimate atmosphere of the Grosvenor Theatre. Hear how the use of period instruments in a mid-sized hall can transform this iconic work from merely powerful to transcendent.

Featuring Yulia Van Doren (soprano), Krisztina Szabó (mezzo-soprano), Charles Daniels (tenor), and Tyler Duncan (baritone).

Performance Sponsor: BlueShore Financial.

A Twin Kennedy Christmas — Evergreen Cultural Centre @ Evergreen Cultural Centre
Dec 7 @ 8:00 pm

Meet TWIN KENNEDY: an identical twin country/roots duo from Victoria, BC. With Carli on guitar and vocals and Julie on fiddle and vocals, these sisters have been described as “Nothing Short of Awesome!” (Cashbox Magazine). This show will be a mix of original holiday songs and traditional Christmas favourites and will be part of their anticipated album release “A Twin Kennedy Christmas”.

Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots – Twin Kennedy, comprised of West Coast sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy, have been making music together since they could talk. Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, Twin Kennedy grew up perfecting their sibling harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band.

Growing up in such a musically infused family, it is no wonder that these sisters crafted their sound through a unique fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz and classical music. With years of classical training, including their Bachelor’s Degrees in Music Performance from the University of Victoria, the sisters have found their home in country music. With Carli on vocals and guitar and Julie on vocals and violin, these petite powerhouses will fill your soul with joy and warmth through their seamless harmonies and heartfelt songwriting. No bond compares to that of sisters, and the same is to be said about the blend of their kindred voices.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas — Massey Theatre @ Massey Theatre
Dec 9 @ 7:30 pm

On December 4th, 1956 an event occurred that was to become a music legend. A jam session started at Sam Phillips’ Sun Records Recording Studio that featured Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley. The jam session seems to have happened by pure chance when all of these Sun recording artists dropped by to give Sam Phillips a holiday visit on that same day. When Elvis wandered over to the piano and started playing a
seasonal song… the others joined in and the jam session began.
The following day, an article about the session, appeared in the Memphis Press-Scimitar under the title “Million Dollar Quartet.” The article contained the now-famous photograph of Elvis seated at the piano surrounded by Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash. The recordings of this event are now collector’s items and the fame and celebrity of the “Million Dollar Quartet” is very well documented.

The Killer, Cash, and the King pay tribute to these legendary Sun Records artist’s music from that original night as well many other hit songs by Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley that have stood the test of time… 90 minutes of rockabilly, country and
pure 1950’s rock and roll portrayed by the world’s leading tribute artists and played the way it is supposed to be played.

Bach to the Future: The Diderot Quartet — Music on Main @ Christ Church Cathedral

Bach to the Future: The Legacy of the Fugue

Johann Sebastian Bach: Art of the Fugue, BWV1080 (excerpts)
Felix Mendelssohn: Fugue in Eb major, Op. 81 No. 4
Felix Mendelssohn: No. 2 Op. 13 in A minor

Johann Sebastian Bach is the greatest composer of all time. However, it took another Leipzig composer, Felix Mendelssohn, to lead a revival of Bach’s music, resulting in universal appreciation and admiration. Mendelssohn’s fascination with Bach’s music reveals itself in his own compositions with references to specific works and adaptations of baroque forms he had learned to love through Bach.

This period instrument program of works by Bach and Mendelssohn is played by the Diderot Quartet, the members of which are recent Juilliard graduates.

The period instrument Eybler Quartet (members of Toronto’s Tafelmusik) traces a line from the obscure early roots to the treasured works of Haydn and Beethoven that became the backbone of the string quartet repertoire.

About L’Elisir d’Amore
L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love) is without a doubt one of the most performed of all Donizetti’s operas – but has not been seen at Vancouver Opera since 1999.
