NuBC Collective performs Peter Maxwell-Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King

  • Telus Studio Theatre, Chan Centre 6265 Crescent Rd Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z1 Canada

I've been waiting for a long long time for the opportunity to perform this masterpiece of chamber music. 

Presented by the Nu:BC Collective in partnership with the Chan Centre as part of the Radius series 

Inspired by medieval madrigals, this contemporary concert will feature new works for The Nu:BC Collective by Keith Hamel and Bob Pritchard of AMP (Art Music Promotion) written specifically for the unique acoustic of the Telus Studio Theatre. The evening will culminate in Peter Maxwell Davies' epic monodrama Eight Songs for a Mad King with baritone William George.
