Cor Flammae [kor 'flam.maj] flaming heart
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.
Exploring works ranging from those of well-known historical figures to pieces by celebrated contemporary composers, Cor Flammae forges a common thread between past and present, illuminating the rich and furtive spaces left out by the usual account. The ensemble hopes to give visibility to queer identities within a musical template, and change the way we listen to the music of our talented community.
