Raminsh hearing Vancouver Chamber Choir perform his latest work

The second half of the annual Good Friday's concert by the Vancouver Chamber Choir features a newly commissioned work by Imant Raminsh, a Canadian composer residing in Prince George.  During a dress rehearsal in the Orpheum, I took this photo in the darkened hall as the composer followed the orchestral score of his new work, The Mystical Bond, "a multi-language tribute to universal brotherhood".  I believe this was the first time he heard the work performed.
