St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church
Artists: Chor Leoni and the Leonids under the direction of Erick Lichte; Alexander Weimann, fortepiano
Chor Leoni is one of Vancouver’s most beloved ensembles. They recently created an offshoot of the ensemble – a nine-voiced professional ensemble with the best tenor, baritone, and bass voices from Canada and the US – called the Leonids. Chor Leoni, the Leonids and Alexander Weimann on EMV’s newly acquired Graf fortepiano, propose a memorable and unique Schubertiad with solos, quartets and part-songs sprinkled with piano solos from Schubert’s Moment Musicaux. Jocelyn Morlock’s stunning version of An Die Musik, one of Schubert’s most popular lied, will be part of this wonderful celebration.
This concert is generously supported by Dr. Katherine Paton.
