 “Seeking Life: Linden and the Bard”

Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 2:30 PM

St. John the Divine Anglican Church – 1611 Quadra Street

The Linden Singers of Victoria, under Music Director Brian Wismath and accompanied by pianist Jane Edler-Davis, presents an afternoon concert with a wonderfully diverse programme of choral music based on the works of William Shakespeare.

The greatest writer in the English language, the immortal Bard has been a never-ending source of rich artistic inspiration. Shakespeare may have died in 1616, but his works speak still speak to audiences today; he writes about who we are and the lives we lead.  The works featured in this concert, all written during the past 60 years across a broad spectrum of musical genres, from the classical to contemporary and jazz , provide a glimpse of his universality and deep understanding of the human psyche.

Concert highlights include selections by Bob Chilcott, John Williams, Emma Lou Diemer, Sven-Eric Johanson and George Shearing.

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 afternoon of the concert.
