Beautiful voices in harmony at St. Thomas on May 11

Chilliwack’s finest a cappella ensemble, Belle Voci will be presenting an evening of beautiful vocal music at St. Thomas on Saturday May 11, 2013.  And just in case you can’t make it that night, they are repeating their performance the very next afternoon, on Mother’s Day.

CSO Music director Paula DeWit says the ensemble Belle Voci was founded in 2009, and the name means Beautiful Voices. This popular 12-piece vocal ensemble sings without accompaniment.

The May 11 program includes Rajitan’s Butterfly, Anton Bruckner’s 3 motets, Os Justi, Christus Factus Est and Locus Iste in their performance, as well as Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah and the beloved favourite, Danny Boy.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, $16 for students and $55 for families 604-391-SHOW (7469). Performance times are 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 12.

Both performances are at St. Thomas Anglican Church on Gore Avenue, well known for its lovely acoustics and wonderful ambiance.
