Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra

The beauty of Benjamin Britten’s timeless classic, A Ceremony of Carols, forms the centrepiece of Elektra’s traditional introduction to the holiday season. Let Elektra set your holiday mood, with a concert of ravishingly beautiful music full of expectation and hope – and as always, there will be treats for the kids!
Under the direction of Morna Edmundson, Artistic Director with special guests: Krutzen/McGhee Duo (Heidi Krutzen, harp & Lorna McGhee, flute), Vancouver Bach Children’s Chorus (Marisa Gaetanne, director) and Stephen Smith, piano & organ

Saturday, November 27, 2010, 2 pm, Queens Avenue United Church, 529 Queens Ave (at 6th St), New Westminster and Saturday, November 27, 2010, 7:30 pm, Ryerson United Church, 2195 W45 Ave, Vancouver.
And just in time for the holiday season, Elektra is pleased to release their newest CD, also called Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra! This CD celebrates musical highlights of several years of Chez Nous, and reflects the mix of familiar touchstones and exciting new compositions that are the hallmark of the live concerts. In addition to no fewer than six exciting new Canadian works and some of our favorite guest artists, we are pleased to re-release our 1992 recording with Rita Costanzi of Benjamin Britten’s timeless A Ceremony of Carols, a work Elektra continues to perform and delight in.
