The newest member of the Gracenote Vancouver choir organization will be performing in Kaslo on Friday and Nelson on Saturday.
“Kôr is a mixed-voice, a cappella choir bringing you lively and moving music,” says Laura Metcalfe, one of the group’s founders.
“Our shows are bright and dynamic, introspective and delicate. And fun, always fun. Kôr’s songs will fill your heart and inspire you to join that choir you’ve been meaning to join for years, or at the very least sing louder in the shower.”
It began as a group of ten singers (including nine Corazón alumni) rehearsing in a cozy East Vancouver living room. Their first performance took place in a yoga studio where the 35 audience members took off their shoes and sat on the floor.
Since then, the organization has outgrown the living room, toured throughout B.C., showcased at the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival and, most recently, doubled in size with the creation of Kôr, its second choir.
Gracenote visited Nelson twice in 2017 and 2018 with sold out shows at the United Church each time.
Tickets for the Kaslo show at the Langham at 7:30 are available at Sunnyside Naturals and Willow Home Gallery.
In Nelson, for two shows at 6 and 8 p.m. at the Nelson United Church, tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre box office online, by phone or in person.
