This December, professional vocal ensemble musica intima is performing a series of seasonal and spicy holiday concerts, including two matinées and a new venue in North Burnaby.
musica intima’s Nativité
The traditional repertoire for Nativité, which was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award, includes O come, O come, Emmanuel; Lully, lulla; Ave Maria; and Five Carols. The ensemble performs newer festive songs that are jazz and blues inspired by Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, and favourites from Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne, and Boney M.
Because the ensemble is a small choir of eight professional singers, it produces a clean and unique sound that can successfully go beyond traditional choral music. It is also conductor-less. Audiences can hear the individual voices, as well as the fuller group harmonies that make Christmas carols so special.
