Vancouver Chamber Choir – CANADIAN QUINTESSENCE at Ryerson United Church Vancouver

Event Details

Ryerson United Church

The annual National Conductors’ Symposium concert is a favourite with our regular concert-goers and first-timers, too. Five talented North American conductors get their first chance to pilot the professional choir. Master Conductor Jon Washburn conducts, too, and Stephen Smith is the pianist. The music is all-Canadian, ranging from the old masters to the latest young stars.
