Early Music Vancouver:

Festive Cantatas

What: EMV's delightful annual yuletide concert is back for 2019, enveloping audiences once again in a sumptuous afternoon of authentic period music. This year's concert––Christmas in Gabrieli's Venice––brings to life the work of master composer Giovanni Gabriel, one of the leading lights of the Venetian High Renaissance. The work of his contemporaries is also included as you sit back and imagine yourself stepping back in time to1600s Italy. Staging their show just before Christmas, this is the perfect concert to put you in the mood for the festive period. Interested in hearing more about the music and the EMV approach? Arrive early for what promises to be a fascinating 2:15pm pre-show talk.
