Hexaphone returns to Hope

Concert will be at Christ Church National Historic Site at 2 p.m. on May 4

Hexaphone returns to Hope’s historic Christ Church for a concert this Sunday at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

Hexaphone is stopping in Hope this weekend to present its latest concert series Mermaid in the Parlour.

“This group is thought of as Canada’s only professional vocal sextet and they have gained great prominence in B.C. and Canada,” said Darla Dickinson, supervisor of Christ Church Anglican & National Historic Site.

“We are excited to have them back, their last concert in 2011 was so powerful people were walking in off the street.”

Hexaphone is a six-member a cappella group from Victoria. They are regularly invited to perform at arts events, including the Victoria Symphony’s New Currents Festival, the Voice Festival, and the New Music In New Places concert series sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre. In 2008, Hexaphone was chosen and commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre to celebrate BC’s 150th anniversary.

The concert will be at Christ Church National Historic Site (681 Fraser Ave.) at 2 p.m. on May 4. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

“This concert will focus on a siren call of alluring songs for six voices by Schumann, Finzi, Brahms and Elgar,” said Dickinson.

Hexaphone’s Mermaid in the Parlour is the first of four recognized performers that Christ Church will bring to Hope for their 2014 Concert Series.

Tickets for Hexaphone are available at Hope Pharmasave and Romano’s.
