Rhythm 'n' Roots and Roots 'n' Wings presents:
Sharing the Sky
Roots 'n' Wings and Rhythm 'n' Roots will join forces for our annual Winter Concert - Sat Jan 21st - close to 100 voices will burst into beautiful song. These two East Van choirs traveled to Cuba together last year and are excited to be sharing the stage again - joining forces to create lush, intricate and juicy musical offerings!
Roots 'n' Wings - a 45 voice, soulful women's choir under the direction of Dawn Pemberton will sing a collection of songs that speak to the heart, celebrate home and connectedness, and call for unity.
Rhythm 'n' Roots - a 50+ adventurous mixed choir under the direction of Karla Mundy will explore some of the beautiful and rich music of the North - playful Quebecois rounds, new songs by BC women, Corsican polyphony, Georgian gallops, a re-imagined shape note hymn, powerful Bulgarian and Hungarian a cappella songs and a Croatian love poem.
We will be joined by some wonderful musicians
Steve Charles (banjo and guitar
Patrick Metzger (bass and guitar)
Paul Bray (percussion)
Celebrate our shared human stories and sounds through beautiful music and community.
