Ryerson United Church (2195 W. 45th Avenue, Vancouver)
We celebrate the choral music of one of Vancouver’s best-loved pianists and composers, our own accompanist Dr. Stephen Smith. Your One and Only Life (named for a song by Nova Scotia’s Susan Crowe) see Elektra together with The Vancouver Men’s Chorus and the director Willi Zwozdesky. Familiar songs, stunning compositions, and a world premiere are on the program as both choirs celebrate the arrangements and original compositions of our treasured colleague.

VanMan’s Summit Concert features singing from the area’s best male ensembles, performances by Chor Leoni’s MYVoice choirs, and an unforgettable finale featuring over 300 voices raised in song in the glorious acoustics of the Chan Centre. From the purity of boy sopranos to the depths of basso profundos, VanMan explores all the beauty and richness of the male voice. Be sure to get your tickets early for this “unmissable” choral event.

- Vancouver Men’s Chorus Sings for Gay Syrian Refugees It was a hugely exciting and humbling experience for the 90+ VMC chorus members to perform an outreach fundraising Making Spirits Bright show on December 9th. Read the article on the Georgia Straight website.
Our audience was comprised of local community groups, and the funds raised were in support of Rainbow Refugees, a wonderful Vancouver society who are sponsoring a gay Syrian couple currently in hiding in Turkey. The fundraising efforts contributed sufficient funds that their refugee application could now begin. For more information about contributing to Rainbow Refugees, please visit their website: www.rainbowrefugee.ca.
