Corazón in Touchstones for their 2012 performance at the gallery.

Corazón Choir offers surround-sound gallery experience at Touchstones Nelson

The singers will perform the same 20-minute show five times, for a new audience each time.

Audiences will be literally surrounded by song at 63/360 (sixty-three singers, three hundred and sixty degrees) at Touchstones Nelson on April 7.

Corazón, Nelson’s celebrated 63-member youth choir (age range 13 to 21), will encircle the interior of Gallery A and perform four pieces. You, the listener, will not be seated like an audience but will stand or wander in the middle as the singers perform all around you.

Corazón’s director, Allison Girvan, has chosen colourful, dramatic music to highlight the extraordinary acoustics of the gallery.

Touchstones’ current exhibit, I Love You, In Theory, the text-based paintings of the Winlaw artist Graham Gilmore, will provide a provocative backdrop for the performance.

The singers will perform the same 20-minute show five times, for a new audience each time. The first show is at 2:30 p.m. with performances starting every 30 minutes until 4:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10. A maximum of 40 people will be admitted into each performance. Advance tickets may be purchased at Touchstones in person only (no phone or online sales).

Last year’s performances sold out early and received ecstatic reviews from audience members.
