Christmas at Home

2:00pm Saturday, December 10, 2016
New Westminster Christian Reformed Church, Burnaby
8255 13th Ave., between 1st Street and Newcombe

Amabilis invites you to an afternoon concert celebrating the joyful magic of the Christmas season. Come, be moved by Connor Koppin’s luscious There is No Rose, the tenderness of Will Todd’s My Lord Has Come, Stacey Gibbs’ spirited arrangement of Go Tell it On the Mountain, Sandra Peter’s gorgeous re-working of Silent Night, and the sparkling, animated works of Vivaldi and Handel.

Beautiful music, favourite carols, and boisterous sing-alongs – let us share with each other the spirit that is Christmas.

Adults/Seniors: $20 | Children under 11: free
Tickets: Available from all choir members, at the door, or by calling 604.503.2074.

Love is in the Air

8:00pm Saturday, February 18, 2017
New Westminster Christian Reformed Church, Burnaby
8255 13th Ave., between 1st Street and Newcombe

Looking for a unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Join us as we pay tribute to Cupid by delving into some familiar and unfamiliar amorous treasure troves. Find out whether the romantically inspired George Gershwin, Matthew Harris, Morten Lauridsen, Peggy Lee, Lennon & McCartney, Cole Porter, William Shakespeare and Ward Swingle can still set your heart aflutter…when love and music are in the air! Remember: a ticket to this concert will fare far better than offering your sweetheart another lacklustre, humdrum box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Hey! What if we promise to have chocolate as well?!…

Adults/Seniors: $20 | Children under 11: free
Tickets: Available from all choir members, at the door, or by calling 604.503.2074.

Luminosity

with violist Beth Nickel and organist Roy Campbell

8:00pm Saturday, May 27, 2017
Holy Rosary Cathedral, Vancouver
646 Richards St. @ Dunsmuir St., Vancouver

Amabilis is privileged to present the rarely-heard Luminosity by British composer James Whitbourn. This 30-minute composition explores light, love and profound truths through the texts of great spiritual writers including St. John, St. Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich and St. Isaac of Nineveh. Whitbourn’s combination of choir, with Western and Eastern instruments – organ, viola, tam-tam and tanpura – results in a radiant fusion of styles and traditions, made all the more remarkable in the stunning acoustic of Vancouver’s Holy Rosary Cathedral. Also on the programme are works by Ticheli, Vasks and Luengen.

Adults/Seniors: $20 | Children under 11: free
Tickets: Available from all choir members, at the door, or by calling 604.503.2074.
