Timothy Findley’s The Wars

When Robert Ross, a tender-hearted idealist who shares a strong bond with his wheelchair-bound sister, trades his comfortable Canadian life for the harsh world of trench warfare in World War I, we watch his slow unravelling. This story takes us deep inside the mind of a soldier and catapults us into the mud, smoke, and chlorine gas of the front line in France during World War I. Details

Friede auf Erden: Peace and Remembrance

Friede auf Erden: Peace and Remembrance presents a program of choral works exploring humanity’s quest for peace—within our world, our lives, and beyond. Arnold Schoenberg’s monumental Friede auf Erden (Peace on Earth) takes lush chromatic harmony to its limits while expressing a powerful message relevant to our time. Einojuhani Rautavaara’s entrancing Missa a cappella, Arvo Pärt’s meditative Da pacem Domine, and Gustav Mahler’s deeply moving Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen provide us with opportunities for further contemplation—and consolation. As we remember those who have served in times of war and peace, Vancouver Cantata Singers invite you to take part in this musical evening of reflection and share with us in our collective and individual desire for peace.
