Amabilis is happy to welcome Frank Lee, our new Artistic Director.
Come listen to the music of angels, love, and shimmering starlight. Our program will feature the rich harmonies of Brian Schmidt’s Lux Aeterna, the gentle sweetness of K. Lee Scott’s A Welsh Lullaby, John Rutter’s Angels’ Carol, Josu Elberdin’s Izar Ederrak (“The Beautiful Star”) sung in Basque, and the stunning Ubi Caritas by the Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. Hear the beauty of Diane Loomer’s arrangements of Yule-Tide Fires and Behold, Emmanuel, and the rhythmic joy in the Nigerian carol Betelehemu. Our program will take you from traditional to contemporary, from sing-along carols to Michaelson and Bareilles’ Winter Song and Sarah McLachlan’s Angel.
Joining Amabilis on December 9th is the Burnaby Central Chamber Choir, directed by Carrie Taylor. On December 10th, we welcome the St. Thomas More Collegiate Chamber Singers, directed by Johnson Lui.
Please note that the majority of choristers will be unmasked and that there will be some singing in the aisles.
Tickets are available for purchase online only, via Eventbrite, for $25.00 (+ booking fee). Children 12 & under are admitted free. If you need assistance with purchasing online tickets, please contact a friend or family member who sings in Amabilis or email us at email@example.com.
