Hexaphone, Victoria’s six-member a cappella ensemble, presents “Byrds and B’s”, a concert inspired by Valentine’s Day and devoted to composers whose names begin with the letter “B”. There will be motets of William Byrd, partsongs of Johannes Brahms, a wonderful English story set by Benjamin Britten, and light-hearted songs of William Billings, Dave Brubeck and Irving Berlin. Hexaphone won the Elmer Iseler Prize for the Best Performance of a Canadian Composition and enjoyed enthusiastic audiences this past summer at the Kathaumixw International Choral Festival in Powell River.
