In Africa poster dbVCS Youth Choirs will present IN AFRICA featuring a musical theatre performance of ELEPHANT’S CHILD, May 29th 10:30am & 1pm (School shows) and May 30th 2:30pm and 7pm, Cityview Church (4370 Sophia St). Admission to the community show is by donation ($5 suggested amount).

People the whole world ’round have been delighted in the telling and re-telling of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved story of how the elephant got his trunk. This charming musical adaptation preserves much of Kipling’s clever text with its fascinating word rhythms and oral imagery; while the five original songs capture the mystery and humor of the Elephant’s Child’s exciting adventure down the Great Grey-Green Greasy Limpopo River.

Led by Gerda Blok-Wilson , accompanied by Kevin Eng, assisted by Andrea Westaway this performing choir (boys and girls age 7 – 13) offers singers a wide variety of 2 and 3 – part treble repertoire, more advanced vocal technique and musical theatre stage experience. Past performances by the VCS singers include Clowns and Pinocchio.

“The kids were fantastic – the sound carried so well, even the soloists.”  Beth Ringdahl (singer)

“I finally made a concert last night and enjoyed it thoroughly. Loved the repertoire and the high energy.” Mavis Weston (conductor)
