Cor Flammae is Vancouver’s summer chorus of classically trained, queer singers, performing queer content. Composed from the ranks of the city’s top-flight choral ensembles and singers, the choir seeks to reveal the hidden queer heritage often ignored in the conservative world of classical music.
Artistry and Outreach:
In their first season (Summer 2014) Cor Flammae performed a sold-out concert of all queer content with the Vancouver Queer Arts Festival, premiered two new works by queer composers Catherine Laub and Michael Park, sang with Seattle’s Diverse Harmony on their tour to Vancouver, and performed a pop-up performance for the Vancouver Queer Film Festival.

– Benjamin Britten
