The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts and UBC School of Music at the University of British Columbia have announced a line-up of Fall 2021 performances with live audiences in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.
The Chan Centre Presents and Wednesday Noon Hours series return with programs featuring Canadian performing artists from all genres, including UBC School of Music faculty members, and music students sharing a series of ensemble concerts to highlight their talents.
“Live music is back! We are thrilled to announce a vast array of performances for audiences to choose from this fall as they return to the seats of the Chan Shun Concert Hall”, says Pat Carrabré, Director of the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts and UBC Music. “From emerging talents who demand our attention with their powerful voices, to local bands playing energetic Latin rhythms, to stellar student performances led by some of North America’s most renowned music faculty—there is something for everyone. We are also excited to announce the first performance in our Chan Centre Curated series led by visionary mezzo-soprano Marion Newman. Her series, focusing on Indigenous artists, will continue in spring 2022—lots to look forward to. As we emerge from a period of time that challenged us all in many ways, I invite you to gather together once again and enjoy the incredible experience of watching a live performance with others. There is still nothing quite like it.”
