Internationally renowned for their engaging stage presence, impeccable musicianship and new perspectives on ensemble singing, musica intima has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s most unique vocal ensembles. A shared leadership model allows the singers to exchange ideas freely while exploring their own musical creativity, and this freedom leads to dynamic performances where the ensemble engages with the audience directly and spontaneously.
Over the past almost thirty years, musica intima has commissioned twenty new works from Canadian composers and has championed contemporary Canadian vocal repertoire around the country and across the world. musica intima has released ten commercial recordings, received two JUNO nominations, and one Western Canadian Music Award. The most recent recordings are “thirst” (2015) which was released on the composer- and artist-run Redshift label, and the independent release of the seasonal EP ‘Songs for a Winter’s Night’ (2018).
Recent and upcoming highlights have included a tour to the Busan Choral Festival in Korea (2016), the Chan Centre-presented collaboration with international superstar vocalist Bobby McFerrin (2019), and a digital collaboration with a rising star of the Musical Theatre world, spoken word artist and activist Germaine Konji (2021). The 21/22 season holds exciting collaborations with Indigenous choreographer Olivia C. Davies, the premiere of a new work by Emily Millard, and “Nagamo” a performance curated by composer Andrew Balfour which will also be recorded for release later this year.
