The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, directed by Jonathan Quick, with pianist Karen Lee-Morlang, presents a program of Celtic-themed songs in a benefit concert supporting the Saint James Music Academy (SJMA). Through the generous support of Bader Philanthropies, all ticket revenues (excluding service and credit card fees) will be donated to SJMA.
SJMA is a community-based after school program providing high quality classical music education to children living in and around Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Through orchestras, choirs, music therapy programs, and so much more, students from grade 2 to grade 12 experience the joys and challenges of learning music together – and of playing an important part in something beautiful that is larger than themselves.
The VWMC will sing a selection of songs from our broad repertoire. The SJMA orchestra will join the choir for two songs (Land of Hope and Glory, and The Impossible Dream), and will perform one orchestral piece, showcasing the talent and accomplishment of these dedicated young musicians.
Approximately 1 hr 45 min, including a 15 minute intermission.
