The Vancouver Cansing Choir, director Gerda Blok-Wilson and assistant director, Kevin Eng will present “Change the World.” Tuesday, April 12th, 7pm, Cityview Church. The short program will explore songs from a variety of genres which touch on this theme.

Joining the choir is Ryan Flores, a third-year voice student (bass) at UBC’s School of Music who presently sings in the UBC’s University Singers (Director, Graeme Langager) and is a former St Patrick’s Regional High School choir member and student of choral teacher, Tony Araujo and artist in resident’s Gerda Blok-Wilson and Kemuel Wong. Ryan, the 2022 VCSC bursary recipient, will present three solos and join the choir in a final piece.

The short family-oriented program will feature songs including selections by songwriter and composers Andre Thomas, Victor Johnson, Larry Nickel, and Lee Dengler and arrangements by Gerda Blok-Wilson (The Times They Are A-Changin’) and Kevin Eng (Change the World). At the VCSC concerts, audience members have the opportunity to join in singing as well!

There is no admission to the event but the choir asks that audience members donate to Ukraine through such organizations as the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders.

The singers will be wearing masks during the performance. Because Covid is still very prominent in our community, the choir recommends that the audience wear masks as well.
