A return engagement of our fabulous May 2015 performance!

Special fundraising concert for the Artistic Expression Studio at Centre 507 adult drop-in centre and support service.

Admission by donation (suggested: $10-$15)

In this fun and informal concert, the full choir and smaller groups will entertain you with a lively selection of jazz, pop and Broadway tunes accompanied by keyboard, bass and drums. This is a great opportunity to come see the Canadian Centennial Choir sing a fun-filled, terrifically musical concert in support of Centre 507's art program. Bring your kids! Dance along as we sing the Beatles, Abba, classic musical tunes and more, including an amazing piece called Little Jazz Mass (12 fun minutes with piano, bass and percussion accompaniment!). A wonderful chance to see a fun concert, support music and art programs, and spend time grooving with family and friends.

Our 48th season opens with a universally loved choral-orchestral work: Vivaldi's Gloria in D major, RV 589. Our choir and three guest soloists will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra. British composer Bob Chilcott has written a very entertaining setting of the cumulative carol The Twelve Days of Christmas with clever musical twists and turns in various styles. We will perform it with piano duet and percussion along with other seasonal music.
