from Victoria BC
Hexaphone is Carolyn Howe (soprano), Hannah Mitchell (alto), John Doughty (tenor), Ian Bullen (tenor), Nicholas Fairbank (baritone), and Paul Boughen (bass). Now in its tenth season, the group was formed in 2002 with the goal of performing diverse styles of vocal music, one voice to a part. Hexaphone has become a highlight of Victoria's choral scene, singing music of many styles and periods, with a particular focus on new Canadian works. They have appeared at the Victoria Symphony's New Currents Festival, the Voice++ Festival, and the New Music In New Places concert series sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre. In 2008, Hexaphone was chosen to premiere Five Songs for BC, a new work commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre celebrating BC's 150th anniversary. In 2011 they toured the Okanagan, singing in Hope, Penticton, and Kelowna. This July, Hexaphone will participate In International Choral Kathaumixw in Powell River, BC.
