Hope Comes - City Soul Choir

Fri Dec 9th and Sat Dec 10th at 7:30 pm

Canadian Memorial Church (15th and Burrard)

The City Soul Choir and music director, Karla Mundy, are thrilled to be returning to the stage to raise our voices together and celebrate with you! 

With a brand new mix of uplifting music, we will journey from Contemporary to Classics with a repertoire that crosses the globe and reminds us to keep singing, keep going and that HOPE is not a feeling, HOPE is an action! From contemporary songwriters Jon Batiste, The Bengsons, Matisyahu, Coco Love Alcorn and Ali Romanow, to Gospel, Spirituals, a Cuban prayer, and music by Paul Simon and Johnny Nash, City Soul Choir will sing our hearts out and invite you in!

Accompanying the choir is our top-notch band led by Michael Creber on keyboards, with Adam Rohrlick on guitar, Brent Gubbels on bass, and Craig Scott on drums. Get your tickets early through choir members, or online at Tickit.

What a great evening! Recently, I heard the City Soul Choir, conducted by Brian Tate, in a concert of songs that was both moving and a joy to hear! Brian and Patricia Tate have created in the City Soul Choir one of the most exciting musical programs Vancouver has to offer.

The City Soul Choir has the power to draw you in close...everyday people find their extraordinary voices, and what a pleasure that is to behold.
