Elektra Women's Choir Announces 24th Season

Vancouver's renowned Elektra Women's Choir and Artistic Director, Morna Edmundson, are pleased to announce their 24th season, which includes a reading session of new works for women's choirs, a choral singing workshop for women, benefit concerts, and their main series, with performances in Vancouver, Victoria, West Vancouver, and New Westminster.

The Krutzen/McGhee harp and flute duo and the Vancouver Bach Children's Choir are guest artists for Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra. This annual event, traditionally scheduled earlier in the season, offers an opportunity to enjoy some favourite music before the hectic schedule of December takes your breath away.

Elektra's co-presentation with Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Spring: O Primavera, offers a musical trip back in time to the Venice of the Doges, with music by Vivaldi and more. The orchestra will present Vivaldi's Spring from his beloved Four Seasons, and Elektra will join the orchestra in a performance of his exciting Gloria. Solo sets by each ensemble will round out the programme of musical richness.

The choir's final concert of the season brings together a dear friend and Elektra to share music and insightful Canadian readings around the themes of friendship, love, and life. Kindred Spirits: Elektra & Shelagh Rogers will include a visual component as well, with a slide show curated by Shelagh.

Elektra's 2010/11 season offers a musical feast featuring the award-winning choir's lustrous sound. Visit or call the choir office (604.739.1255) to order season tickets and to sign up for their email newsletter, the Elektric Wire. Tickets to individual concerts are also available now through Brown Paper Tickets 1.800.838.3006

The choir can be found on Facebook and on Twitter (@ElektraYVR). Be part of Elektra's 24th season and get "Elektra-fied!"
