Harmonia String Ensemble, together with the Vivaldi Chamber Choir, composed by Franz Joseph Haydn presents an Easter Tribute.
Harmonia is a string chamber ensemble based in Vancouver, BC. The group originated 20 years ago when founder Tony Lee invited a small group of musician friends to play string orchestral music in his living room. Since then, Harmonia has grown to about 16-20 players with resident conductor Nick Urquhart and concertmaster Dominic Woo.
Harmonia’s focus is on performing many of the great string works that are rarely heard in concert halls today. Orchestra members come from many walks of life - professionals, businessmen, teachers and retirees. All are advanced performers of their respective instruments and dedicated to the joy of making wonderful music together.
Over the years, Harmonia has performed numerous fund-raising concerts for charities, retirement residences and hospitals. Harmonia has performed at Taiwanfest over the past four years, and also played Lunar Year concerts at the Orpheum Theatre. They were invited to perform the Lunar Year concert again in 2024.
