The choirs will be rehearsing for the 70 – minute show, TO THE SPIRIT OF SONG, Friday, November 17th, 7pm and will feature thematic songs from the classic, jazz, popular, musical theatre and folk genre. While many pieces are still being selected, the show will feature some fantastic mass choir selections including  Changes (women’s choirs), Stand by Me (men) Bonse Aba (Adult & Chorthemo) Sing (Advanced youth choir) & Kusimama (Mass Youth choirs). The VCS mass choir of 150 voice will perform I Love You/What a Wonderful World. A more detailed list of music repertoire will be sent to registrants at the end of June.

What a delight to see the wonderful work being done here! CanSing is comprised of various choral groups of varying age groups, all of whom sing separately but also engage in multi-generational music-making.  I could not help but be swept away by the spirit of community.  The joy and sense of belonging in the room was undeniable.
