The DaCapo Chamber Choir, founded in 1998, is dedicated to exploring unaccompanied music, primarily of the 20th Century and later, with an emphasis on Canadian repertoire.
Our 2015-2016 season will feature special guests, Kevin Ramessar (guitar), the Exultate Chamber Singers, our 2015 NewWorks winner David Archer, and more!
The DaCapo Chamber Choir is thrilled to announce the 2015 NewWorks composition competition winner, David Archer (Vancouver, BC).
Jury members commended Archer’s work for its singability, and for a structural and aesthetic complexity that marks it as a particular and special work; they noted that the music will reward repeated performance/listening with increased satisfaction and depth of musical experience. Director Leonard Enns commented: “It’s a wonderful, challenging and complex piece, and promises to be wholly satisfying for performers and listeners. I know it will be deeply rewarding for the choir and the audience.”
David’s In Sweet Music will be premiered at the choir’s all-Shakespeare March 2016 concert.
Another work featured prominently for the jury members and therefore we have decided to also name an honorable mention: Martin Fairbank (Dorval, QC) for his composition How Sweet the Moonlight. The choir also hopes to premiere this piece during our 2015-2016 concert season.
DaCapo gratefully acknowledges the Wallenstein Feed Charitable Foundation’s generous sponsorship of the NewWorks competition.
