The November concert features guest chamber choir from the Vancouver Academy of Music, the VAM SCHOLA CANTORUM conducted by Director of Choral Studies, Kathleen Allan. They will perform a programme of Renaissance-inspired “Bestiaire” - music of birds and beasts! From Janequin’s old French and imitative bird song in “Le chant des oyseaulx” to Banchieri’s “Contropunto bestiale”, it is going to be an unforgettable concert.
