Join the Vancouver Cansing Choir at Cityview Church on May 2nd at 7pm for their benefit concert in support of the Red Cross Ukraine relief fund. Enjoy a premiere performance of “I Catch My Breath and Sing,” the choir’s newly commissioned piece by acclaimed Canadian Composer Lavinia Kell Parker.
Parker is renowned for her use of improvisation with traditional compositional elements, earning her the New Genre Award from the International Alliance of Women in Music and top prizes in choral composition. Her choral works have been performed by elite choirs internationally and on the airwaves with CBC radio and PBS television.
As an educator, Parker has focused on bringing the joy of music to children and is the founder of Coulee Composers, a composition club for children in southern Alberta.
She is an Associate Composer of the Canadian Music Centre and an Instructor at the University of Lethbridge Conservatory of Music.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the magic of Parker’s music along with other seasonal choral pieces by Vancouver Cansing Community Choir.
