The Marcus Mosely Chorale & City Soul Choir presents:
The 4th Annual STAYED ON FREEDOM! A Musical Celebration of Black History Month
The City Soul Choir (director - Brian Tate) and The Marcus Mosely Chorale (directors - Marcus Mosely, Darlene Ketchum, Bill Sample) are pleased to announce their 4th annual co-production: STAYED ON FREEDOM! A Musical Celebration of Black History Month.
The evening will feature a rich tapestry of musical styles drawn from Black traditions. Aside from the two choirs you'll hear the vocal trio TriVo (Dawn Pemberton, Karla Mundy, Brian Tate); and the vocal quartet What It Is (Mimi Beyene, Cass King, Patti Powell, Carol Wiedemann). Very special guest solo artists include Dawn Pemberton, who has just released her soulful, long-awaited debut CD "Say Somethin'" to international acclaim; gospel vocalist Will Sanders of The Sojourners fame; and the return of Vancouver's elegant first lady of jazz, Eleanor Collins, who in 2014 was named a Member of the Order of Canada.
Local keyboard wizards Bill Sample and Michael Creber will provide accompaniment. Our emcee is Marc Lindy of Co-op Radio's Gospel Train; Marc is a tireless supporter of music and choirs in Vancouver. This event is a partial fundraiser to honour Leon Bibb and support his foundation 'A Step Ahead', an anti-racism school program (http://www.astepaheadfoundation.ca/
