We cordially invite you to join us for Evening Peace, the Amabilis Singers’ spring concert, coming up on Saturday, April 29th, 2023.
Abendfriede, or Evening Peace, by Josef Rheinberger sets the tone for this evening of song. Our varied and delightful repertoire ranges over time and through genres, from Victoria and Brahms, through to modern classics by Lauridsen, Childs, Aguila and Tate. Hear how Stroope’s Amor de mi Alma and Barnum’s Afternoon on a Hill lend beautiful musical context to exquisite poetry, and how Lapatha & Dyck’s arrangement colours the traditional Irish melody of Bonny Portmore. Enjoy Barnwell’s Wanting Memories, made famous by Sweet Honey in the Rock, and There is a Light, by local musicians Acorn and Nickel, among other choral highlights.

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.
