“Linden Traditions: Community”
Saturday, April 13th at 7:30 pm
St. Aidan’s United Church
The Linden Singers of Victoria is pleased to welcome award winning Vancouver choir, EnChor, and its new director Morna Edmundson. This joint concert pays tribute to “community”, in keeping with a tradition and a value that is fundamental to both of these choirs.
The Linden Singers believe in building community through song; EnChor is about “belonging in a community that is supportive, sprinkled with good humour and stimulating”.
In addition to simply enjoying the experience of choral community – the programme will feature the choirs individually and en masse with close to 100 voices – the spotlight will be on local composers and the wealth of talent in our own backyard. Featured composers include Jennifer Bennett, David Archer, Kathleen Allan, and Tobin Stokes, many of whom are personally known to us and the greater community.
Both choirs look forward to singing together for our extended community of friends and fans.
Admission is $20.00 for those aged 25 and up. Anyone under 25 can enjoy the concert free of charge. Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.lindensingers.ca/concerts-tickets, from choir members, or at the door on the evening of the concert.
EnChor is an acclaimed, mixed-voice, auditioned choir based in Vancouver for experienced singers 55 years and older. The choir is the creation of the late Dr. Diane Loomer, C.M. She felt there was a largely untapped well of experienced singers who had reached their 55th birthday and were still interested in performing high quality music. EnChor draws on the strong musical background and depth of experience of its members to produce programs which please music aficionados and provide entertainment for all. Artistic Director, Morna Edmundson, is also Artistic Director of Elektra Women’s Choir. Her accomplishments include the BC Choral Federation’s Healey Willan Award (2000), a BC Community Achievement Award (2009), YWCA Woman of Distinction Award, Arts and Culture category (2011), and UBC Alumni Builder Award (2017).
