Alumni Project presents ‘Our Choral Roots’

Choir of young adults ages 20 to 40

The Alumni Project Choral Ensemble presents a choral concert, “Our Choral Roots,” featuring all the pieces new and old that represent their past, present and future.

The Alumni Project is Abbotsford’s newest and freshest choir of young adults ages 20 to 40 who love music and love to sing to their community.

Choral repertoire will include favourites such as Larry Nickel’s ‘The Storm Is Passing Over’, Billy Joel’s ‘Lullabye’, King Singer’s ‘And So It Goes’, Swingle Singers ‘Country Dances’ and many more. They will also perform the beautiful music of Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo, with ‘The Lake Isle’ featuring internationally renowned guitarist, Itamar Erez. Also on the program will feature a few vocal duets, quintets and even a medley of music from the beloved ‘Les Miserables.’

The Ensemble is privileged to share the stage with the Calvin Dyck String Quartet as well as members of the Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir and Ajay Klassen on percussion.

The program is being presented on April 29 at the Mennonite Heritage Museum in Abbotsford. Tickets are available for either the matinee performance at 3 p.m. or the evening performance at 7 p.m.

Because of limited seating in the venue, tickets are limited, so arrange to purchase them ahead of time. Tickets are available for purchase at the House of James in Abbotsford, online at www.brownpapertickets.com or from choir members.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults or $10 for students ages 5-12, which includes your concert fee, museum entrance fee and refreshments.
