musica intima

On May 12, one of the best choirs in the country, the 12-voice musica intima (who are self-conducting and prefer the lower case) are holding a joint fundraiser to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation at Heritage Hall on Main Street.

They're co-presenting the event with Team Finn, named after Finn Sullivan, an adorable little boy who died at 3 of cancer. It's called "Run, Jump, Bounce, Dance, Sing, Smile, Love, and Ride," which seems to sum up Finn's philosophy.

The event is casual and starts at 7:30. You can meet the members of the choir and Team Finn in an atmosphere of cupcake tasting, music and a silent auction. Guests who purchase their tickets by Monday, May 10 will also be entered to win a special gift of their choice from Sikora’s Classical Records. Tickets are $50 and include one complimentary beverage.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.musicaintima.org/experience/season_soire/20100512/193000/

And musica intima has just released a new CD called into light. It's stunning. It can be ordered from
