In the Mood For Christmas
This year, we are pleased to present a combined choral concert with guest choir Carousel Chorus of North Vancouver. The stage will be full with 70 + singers, pianists Barry Yamanouchi and Miri Lee, and special guest percussionist Bruce Henczel. Along with the classic favorites and sing-alongs, we're particularly excited to perform Robert Ray's Gospel Magnificat. It's a jazzy setting with choirs, piano and drum set and combines both quiet, contemplative moments with driving, rhythmic and upbeat sections. Don't miss this one!
Who are we?
Formed in 1976, the North Shore Chorus is a community choir based in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. It is a non-auditioned choir that draws its 60 members primarily from North and West Vancouver – the North Shore.
The choir rehearses once weekly and performs two or three concerts each year, often collaborating with other amateur organizations. We also perform in the community as a “public service," singing at seniors' homes and at public events such as the North Shore Candlelight Tribute every September.
The choir's repertoire ranges from pop, jazz and folksong arrangements to madrigals, part-songs and major works with orchestra.
Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7.15pm until 9.45pm from early September until mid May, with a short break at Christmas, at Mount Seymour United Church, 1200 Parkgate Avenue, North Vancouver. [Off the Mount Seymour Parkway] - (map)
