Comments 16 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Enjoy a seasonal celebration of quiet reflection and jubilant hope with Christmas with Chor Leoni from December 15-18, 2023 – and you can enter to win tickets!

Set to a backdrop of soaring architecture and stunning lighting design, the treasured Yuletide tradition includes a dynamic blend of holiday classics and hopeful winter harmonies, coupled with the world premiere of A Midnight Clear from Vancouver’s genre-defying composer and violinist Cameron Wilson.

Christmas with Chor Leoni

  • Dates: December 15th at 7:30pm; December 16th at 11:00am, 2:00pm & 5:00pm; December 18th at 5:00pm & 8:00pm
  • Address: St. Andrew-Wesley’s United (1022 Nelson St., Vancouver)
  • Tickets: Available online now from $20-$75, plus applicable fees. 35 and Under ticket pricing available.

In addition to beloved Christmas carols such as I Saw Three Ships and Silent NightChristmas with Chor Leoni will bring audiences on a meditative journey with the world premiere of Cameron Wilson’s Midnight Clear to the promise of new beginnings with the Canadian premiere of Ola Gjeilo’s New Year’s Carol.

Wilson’s Midnight Clear is composed in three sections and scored for Chor Leoni’s 65-voice choir, as well as a rich accompaniment of piano, harp, acoustic guitar, percussion, and violin.

Returning for an encore performance this season is a previous Chor Leoni premiere. A Fantasy of Carols, written by award-winning B.C. composer and Chor Leoni’s 2022 Composer in Residence Don Macdonald, is a celebration of traditional Christmas favourites, such as Ding Dong Merrily on High, What Child is This?, O Holy Night, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, and O Come All Ye Faithful. With snippets of these classics woven throughout non-traditional musical settings, this rich and unexpected tapestry builds to a jubilant climax. The work was commissioned by Chor Leoni in 2022.

In addition to Wilson on violin, Chor Leoni will be accompanied by several special musical guests, including harpist Vivian Chen, pianist Tina Chang, and guitarist Keith Sinclair.

    I heard Eric talk on CBC last Friday during the Food Bank fundraiser about the passion his choir feels when presenting their Christmas concert and I would love to experience that joy in person!
