 “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, from choir members, or at the door on the afternoon of the concert.
