With the British Columbia Boys Choir and Abbotsford Virtuosi
June 27 to July 27, 2014 in a location near YOU!
It’s a dream come true – as the British Columbia Boys Choir travels across Canada with their sensational new show O CANADA OUR HOME - Songs & Stories of Canada. One highlight for the Choir is singing on Parliament Hill for Canada Day 2014 during the noon-hour performances. The other - meeting people, performing in, and staying in communities across this great nation.
The Choir – Since its inception in 1968, the Choir has trained over 900 young singers (many of whom have become professional musicians and broadcasters) and has represented Canada around the globe. They have won the hearts of audiences everywhere and received acclaim in the Netherlands, Europe, Russia, New Zealand, Australia, China, South America, the United States - and Canada. Says Araujo; “It’s such a wonderful opportunity and fantastic cultural experience for these young artists to perform Canadian choral music across our own great nation – visiting each province, from sea to sea.”
The Abbotsford Virtuosi – This string ensemble was established in 2000 by violinist and conductor Calvin Dyck to provide youth with opportunities to learn a broad range of orchestral repertoire, and to perform in public – with virtuosity - and fun! Their highly successful Songs Strings & Steps concerts create an arts experience that delights audiences and inspires youth to reach for the stars. Says Dyck, “This is the longest and biggest tour we have done and my youngest violinist has said, ‘I’m so EXCITED … I can’t wait!’”
