Monday, February 18th, 2019

Along with Kevin Eng, Andrea Westaway, Tim Mah, Graeme Guimond and all the Vancouver Cansing Choir members, I invite you to LIFE HAS LOVELINESS TO SELL, 7pm, Friday, March 1st, Charles Tupper Auditorium. The uplifting songs from all genres were chosen to fit the theme of Sara Teasdale’s poem “Barter” (Life has loveliness to sell). I hope “everything is great” and you can join us!

Thank you to Makeesha Fisher for the beautiful poster!

My new SATB choral composition “Life Has Loveliness to Sell” will be premiered by our VCS Adult Choir. Other featured repertoire will include choral selections by Vivaldi, Praetorius, Copeland, Jan Garrett (I Dreamed of Rain – arr Larry Nickel), and a 130 voice mass choir finale of  Bret McKenzie’s fantastic song, “Life’s a Happy Song”, SATB choral arrangement by Audrey Snyder. This hour long program will be “full of highs!”
