One of the Lower Mainland's favourite men's choirs makes its Sunshine Coast début at the Raven's Cry Theatre in Sechelt next Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m.
Hailed for their eclectic repertoire and vocal joie de vivre, the Vancouver Orpheus Male Choir offers a mix of popular ballads, sacred and folk songs, Canadiana, rousing male voice classics and the occasional rock and roll. The combination mines the rich history of male choral standards and adds new and unexpected arrangements of contemporary works.
Orpheus was formed in 1992 for men of all ages who love to sing. The Choir makes annual tours to communities throughout B.C. and national travels have included the Maritimes, Alberta, Saskat-chewan and Ontario.
The choir's Sechelt concert, titled Harmonies from Home, is co-hosted by the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden Society. Tickets are still available and can be booked by calling the Garden at 604 740-3969, or at the Raven's Cry Theatre.
