Arrow Lakes Arts Council

Chorealis will have the pleasure of singing for the Arrow Lakes region in Nakusp for the first time.

On Saturday, October 4, the Arrow Lakes Arts Council is opening its 2014-15 Concert Series with the Chorealis Vocal Ensemble.  As a part of their fall tour, “Pathways of Love,” Chorealis will have the pleasure of singing for the Arrow Lakes region in Nakusp for the first time.

The ensemble’s 11 members all live in the Okanagan from Salmon Arm through to Kelowna and have been singing together since 2008.

The Chorealis ensemble is a unique vocal group, as they do not have a conductor.  Instead, all members contribute to create their fine, harmonious and unaccompanied sound.  The ensemble performs a broad range of music, both sacred and secular.  They especially love singing early music, from English madrigals to Latin motets, but are equally adept at more modern repertoire, be it a classical composition or a beloved Beatles tune.

For those who know Rudy and Ethel Goerzen in Burton — members of the former Lakeside Singers —  their grandson is part or the Chorealis ensemble.

Please note that this concert will start at 8 p.m., to accommodate the Mushroom Dinner event at 5 p.m. in the Legion.  Tickets for the event are available at the Bon Marche/Dollar Store until 4 p.m. the day of the concert, then at the door.

Come out and enjoy an evening of song with the Chorealis Vocal Ensemble at the Bonnington Arts Centre, Saturday, October 4 at p.m..
