CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, May 13th, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Musica Intima in Concert

This Sunday Peter Togni brings you one of Canada’s finest chamber choirs, Musica Intima. Based in Vancouver, this unconducted choir has gained an international reputation for its tight blend and extraordinary ensemble singing.

Among many other works, you will hear a world premiere performance of a new concert work by the celebrated Canadian film composer Howard Shore – yes, the guy who won all of those awards for the music to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

You will also hear Mozart’s Mass in C major, in a classic performance with the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge and the Vienna Philharmonic all conducted by Karl Munchinger.

Don’t forget to check out the Choral Concert blog this week and next on CBC music. You will see our regular weekly feature plus a special edition blog on the Sir Ernest Macmillan award in choral conducting that is taking place this year at Podium, Canada’s bi-annual celebration of choral music.
