The Light of Hope Returning

Pacific Spirit United Church, 2205 West 45th Avenue, Vancouver, BC


Celebrate a return to live music with this stunning combination of music and visual art as Elektra performs The Light of Hope Returning, a full-concert Christmas/Winter Solstice piece featuring Elektra, soloist Allison Girvan, and an instrumental ensemble. Based on folk styles and familiar carols, this unique score by Shawn Kirchner is performed live with the original, award-winning video co-commissioned by Elektra in 2020 from Syrian-American artist Kevork Mourad. The Light of Hope Returning poignantly reflects the current state of global uncertainty, while at the same time ultimately trusting in the cycle of the seasons and the hope embodied by the eventual return of light.

The health and safety of our staff and all visitors continues to be of the utmost importance to us. As we begin to welcome audiences back to our concerts, we are following the guidance provided by the Province of British Columbia’s BC Restart Plan. Please note that as of September 13, BC will be instituting a proof of vaccination requirement.

Elektra staff and volunteers will be onsite to welcome you, and we ask that you kindly follow their direction and guidance at all times.
