Sing Monteverdi with the Victoria Philharmonic Choir

Join the 60-voice mixed choir and music director Peter Butterfield in a day of heavenly Renaissance and early Baroque harmony, Feb. 16, St. Mary’s Church, 1701 Elgin, Oak Bay.

This is a rare opportunity for singers to spend a fun and relaxed day exploring vocal and stylistic techniques for singing Monteverdi’s madrigals and sections of his monumental Vespers of 1610, which VPC will perform in June.

The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with an informal performance of the results at 5 p.m. Music will be provided. Cost of the workshop is $30, $15 for students; admission to the concert is by donation.
