In its fourth concert season, the Vancouver Peace Choir will make an appearance at The Reach Gallery Museum this Saturday.

The group is composed of 38 musicians, who are dedicated to search of inner and outer peace through music, hoping to inspire other peacemakers around the world.

Titled In Remembrance, members will sing surrounded by artwork exploring the cultural heritage of regional Punjabi-Sikh communities and the St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Kitsilano.

The name is taken from Eleanor Daley’s text from her song, in which she writes, “Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.”

Other choral composers featured are Arvo Part and Eric Whitacre.

Part’s piece “Da Pacem Domine” combines the stillness of peace and the moving dynamic of melody.

Whitacre’s song “When David Heard” has been described as innovative and euphoric.

The show begins at 7 p.m. on Nov. 19 in the Great Hall at The Reach, 32388 Veterans Way.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for students, and can be purchased at The Reach or online at
