ABOUT THE CHOIR

The City Soul Choir is an auditioned Vancouver community choir founded in 2010 by Brian Tate (music director) and Patricia Tate (singer and manager). 

The CSC is renowned for its joyful, energetic performances. It draws from the soulful songs of many traditions - soul, R&B, spirituals, gospel, pop, world, folk, and more - music that uplifts, inspires, and transforms. The choir produces several concerts per year, and also sings at community outreach events. (See upcoming concert information on the home page.)

After 10 fun-filled years with Brian at the helm, we're excited to announce that as of November, 2019, CSC's new Music Director will be the spirited Karla Mundy. A multi-faceted musician, teacher and choral conductor, Karla is well known and loved in the local music community, as well as in far-reaching places such as Cuba, Georgia (Europe), North Carolina, New Orleans, Haida Gwaii, and more.

Karla deeply loves harmony singing and all that it creates - beauty, connection to the present moment and each other, a common goal, and the way it opens people's hearts and faces!
