Con Brio WHISTLER Gala Concert 2018
Internationally renowned for their warm and engaging stage presence, impeccable musicianship, and unique perspective on ensemble singing, musica intima has earned a reputation as Canada’s most exciting vocal ensemble. The ensemble has graced the stages of some of Canada’s best known festivals, championing contemporary Canadian vocal repertoire in concert halls such as Orford Festival, Elora Festival, Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, Festival de Lanaudière, Palais Montcalm, and the Domaine Forget International Festival. Also an international presence, musica intima has performed twice at the American Choral Directors Association Conference, and has appeared at Polyfollia Festival in France, the Cork International Choral Festival in Ireland, the World Symposium on Choral Music in Denmark and the Busan International Choral Festival in Korea. What makes musica intima truly unique is that the singers rehearse, perform and function as a collective. In rehearsal they use a shared leadership model, exchanging ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity. In performance they engage the audience with a spontaneity and directness all their own.
