Two award-winning choruses will join forces for some extreme harmony on Nov. 19 in two performances of A Cappella Fusion.
Vancouver Island’s City of Gardens Chorus and Burnaby’s Westcoast Harmony Chorus will sing popular songs from the 1960s and ’70s in a cappella four-part harmony. The two choruses took silver and gold in Western Canada competition in May, earning them spots on Sweet Adelines’ international competition stage in Denver, Colorado, in October 2012.
Joining the choruses in A Cappella Fusion are 2011 and 2010 regional quartet champions, Easy Street and Over the Moon, as well as quartets Victoria’s Euphoria, Fancy Free and The Sonic Project. Easy Street will be competing in the international quartet competition this October in Houston, Texas.
“We share an exhilarating, common bond in our love of a cappella harmony that promotes teamwork, friendship, sisterhood, and a sense of achievement,” says Bonnie Dennis, membership chair.
Two shows take place Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Charlie White Theatre at the Mary Winspear Centre. Tickets are $25 available through Joyce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-479-6096, or at the Mary Winspear Centre box office at 250-656-0275 or online at www.marywinspear.ca.
A portion of the shows’ proceeds will be donated to The Cridge Centre for the Family, a society serving children, adults and families.
