Chor Leoni Remembrance Day Concerts

Comments 31 by Rebecca Bollwitt

For 30 years, Chor Leoni’s Remembrance Day concerts have created important moments of community contemplation and reflection. This powerful collective experience is one of the choir’s most cherished traditions and has resonated with audiences across Canada. Join the ensemble as they begin their new season with We Sang Our Songs, on stage at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United November 10th and 11th.

Chor Leoni Remembrance Day Concerts

  • When: Nov 10, 2022 at 7:30pm & Nov 11, 2022 at 2:00pm & 5:00pm
  • Where: St. Andrew’s-Wesley United (1022 Nelson St, Vancouver)
  • Tickets: Available online now for $20-$50

We Sang Our Songs offers a moving program of music and readings featuring diverse perspectives on war and injustice. Highlights include works by Gustav Holst, Arvo Pärt, and William Grant Still. The 65 voices of Chor Leoni will also sing Mykola Lysenko’s “Molytva Za Ukrainu” (Prayer for Ukraine), and world premieres by composer Stacey Philipps and the choir’s Composer in Residence, Don Macdonald.

While a number of the pieces of the program will feature the choir’s acclaimed a cappella sound, audiences will also have the opportunity to hear the voices of Chor Leoni accompanied by St. Andrew’s-Wesley’s new Steinway Model D piano, as well as the newly restored Casavant organ, played by Tina Chang and Jane Kim, respectively. The choir will once again be joined by Katherine Evans on trumpet.
