Imagine 40 voices, 4 different vocal ranges, up to 12 part harmony – all tumbling together in a kaleidoscope of unmatched musical excitement. That’s ELEKTRA WOMEN’S CHOIR.

They burst onto the Vancouver scene in 1987, determined to explore, create and celebrate the repertoire for female voices. They have lived up to their name, “electrifying” audiences with their astonishing depth and richness as they soared into the leadership of international classical women’s choirs. They have truly struck a new chord in women’s choral music. www.elektra.ca.

The evening’s entertainment will start with a performance by talented local young pianist, Jaeden Izik-Dzurko (16) from Salmon Arm. For the final piece of the concert, MacIntyre’s “Ave Maria”, Elektra Women’s Choir will be joined by Armstrong’s 15 voice Ancora Women’s Ensemble (directed by Terry Logan).
