Coastal Sound Youth Choir with Woodpigeon (Vancouver, Canada)
Club Push at Performance Works
1218 Cartwright Street, Granville Island
7:00PM (all ages)
Not your average youth choir, Coastal Sound Youth Choir takes a creative and unique approach to choral music. With members ages 15 to 22, the group was the 2013 winner and 2011 finalist in the National Competition for Amateur Choirs, the 2011 and 2012 Most Outstanding Choir at the National Music Festival, and represented Canada at the 2013 Chorus America Conference. For their performance at Club PuSh, they perform with ultra-hip Woodpigeon (a.k.a. Calgarian Mark Andrew Hamilton), who the Edmonton Journal has praised for his “heart melting melodies… that will swell you with warmth and with love.” The choir and Woodpigeon will perform a mix of indie rock, classical, avant-garde choral music, and a joint set of original Woodpigeon songs.
Just announced: Ashleigh Ball of one of Vancouver’s most popular indie bands, Hey Ocean!, joins her friends on stage for the 9:30pm performance for a surprise setlist.
