Across Canada and the world, Vancouver’s Elektra Women’s Choir holds an enviable reputation for artistic excellence. Recently returned from performances by invitation at the 11th World Symposium on Choral Music in Barcelona under Artistic Director Morna Edmundson, Elektra has an outstanding season of concerts in store for listeners.

Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra is a seasonal tradition for many families. You’ll feel the joy of experiencing familiar carols, as well as the world premiere of arrangements by Canadian composer Laura Hawley. Anchoring the program is Benjamin Britten’s timeless A Ceremony of Carols with harpist Vivian Chen. Enjoy, too, the youthful voices of the West Vancouver School District Women’s Honour Choir.

March brings a compelling performance in tribute to the resilience of the human spirit: Fire Flowers. Named for a work for choir and marimba by Timothy Corlis, the concert includes the world premiere of a work by Carol Barnett.

To round out the season, Elektra welcomes choirs from Iceland, Japan, and Los Angeles to its Tapestry International: Celebration of Women’s Choirs. Hear each ensemble’s exceptional voice in a free concert called Choral Threads, followed by a ticketed Celebration Concert in downtown Vancouver by all participant choirs.

Blend, pitch, tuning, shape, dynamics—all the marks of choral excellence. –Roger Priddle, Elektra Patron
