Yay! Christmas events are starting to show up. Lucy, thanks for sending this!
STELLARIA PRESENTS: MESSIAH UP CLOSE
A fresh take on a holiday tradition.
STELLARIA, Vancouver’s early music vocal ensemble, presents their highly anticipated second concert: MESSIAH UP CLOSE, an intimate performance of Christmas highlights from Handel’s beloved oratorio.
Come experience a fresh new take on a holiday tradition like you’ve never heard before, elegantly scaled down and performed by 17 of Vancouver’s finest vocalists and instrumentalists.
Performances will take place in two of the most beautiful acoustics in the city: Downtown at Holy Rosary Cathedral and in Kitsilano at St.Mark’s Trinity Church.
This is one of the few opportunities to hear Handel’s Messiah performed live in Vancouver this year, so don’t miss out!
Saturday Dec. 8th, 2:30 pm at Holy Rosary Cathedral, 646 Richards Street.
Sunday Dec. 9th, 7:00pm at St. Mark’s Trinity Church, 1805 Larch Street.
Admission by donation at the door.

  3. Stellaria’s Messiah at Holy Rosary Cathedral this afternoon was out of this world! Conductor/singer Derrick N Christian brought new life to the timeless score. I never want to hear a massed choir perform the Messiah again. Stellaria (only twelve of them), string quartet and harpsichord played with the echo in the cathedral to create a soaring, spiral arc that sparked brighter than fireworks in English Bay on a midsummer night. They’ve promised us Part Two for Easter — and I can hardly wait! Stellaria are here to stay. I can’t imagine Christmas without them after this afternoon’s performance.
