Encore! Women’s Choir under the direction of Christine Dandy is excited to present “Singing With My Sisters” with special guest choir Opus One Women’s Choir from Langley, BC.

Opus One’s director Brenda Wilson sang with Elektra Women’s Choir in Vancouver for ten years (1990-2000) and after a long hiatus is singing with them again. In 2014, under her direction, Opus One placed second in the Single Voice Category at Kathaumixw, the international choir competition held every second year in Powell River.
Encore’s portion of the program will cover a wide variety of genres - traditional songs, old classics, modern compositions, and pop songs.

The audience will be delighted to hear such diverse selections such as the Baroque ballad “Flocks are Sporting”, Harry Belafonte’s “Turn Around”, a very joyous “Alleluia” by Canadian composer Kelly-Marie Murphy, and an upbeat French folksong, Il est Bel et Bon; for a more contemplative mood, lovely arrangements of “The Wayfaring Stranger” and “Healing River” and just for the fun of it the Jazz favourite, “They Just Keep Moving the Line”.

Opus One will be singing selections from their spring concert, What a Wonderful World. In addition, the choirs will be joining together to sing the beautiful “Hymn to Freedom” by Oscar Peterson and a rousing arrangement of “Will the Circle be Unbroken”

This promises to be an outstanding concert - one that lovers of choral music will not want to miss!
