Christmas With Les Dala
When Leslie Dala, VO's Associate Conductor and Chorus Director, was appointed the new Music Director of Vancouver Bach Choir last year, we were thrilled. The opportunity couldn't have happened to a nicer and talented-beyond-belief guy. Les was recently named one of the 'Top 10 Artistic Leads Whose Stars Are On The Rise' by the Vancouver Sun.
To open Vancouver Bach Choir's 80th anniversary season, Les will take the podium to conduct a trio of Christmas concerts at the Orpheum Theatre.
Christmas with the Bach Choir
Leslie Dala's first season as Music Director of the Vancouver Bach Choir begins with this ever-popular annual concert. The concert brings together all the choirs of the Bach Choir organization.
A grand performance of Handel's Messiah, surely the most popular work of all time, in the fabulous setting of the Orpheum Theatre. Music Director, Leslie Dala conducts the Bach Choir, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and noted Canadian soloists Allison Angelo, soprano; Lauren Segal, mezzo; Colin Ainsworth, tenor, and Alexander Dobson, bass.
The Bach Choir's Sing Along Messiah will receive its 30th Annual performance on Sunday afternoon, December 12th. The Sing Along Messiah is an afternoon of music making and good fellowship which includes the audience, the Bach Choir, the Vancouver Symphony and fifteen auditioned soloists.
Three wonderful events to get you in the mood for Christmas. (It's approaching fast!)
