Corazón singers Gillian Wiley

Corazón is calling you

The local youth choir practiced for their upcoming concert at the Nelson United Church on Tuesday evening.

“A desert road from Vegas to nowhere,” Corazón soloist Michael Marsland sang during a practice Tuesday night at the Nelson United Church with director Allison Girvan. “Some place better than where you’ve been.”

Those are the opening lines to “Calling You” by Bob Telson, one of the songs Corazón will perform during the upcoming six-choir configuration Voices West at the Brilliant Cultural Centre at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

“I am calling you,” the choir sang together. “Can’t you hear me? I am calling you.”

Fellow soloist Emma Chart (above) then joined in, backed up by Siena Luckett, Sebastian Bodine, Tibo Kölmel, Liam Jones and Isaac Gray (below).

Vaughn Preninger (below) found himself grinning as he rehearsed, while Gillian Wiley, Alexandra Deane and Leigha Calladine offered up their ethereal vocalizations (top photo).

“That was haunting,” Girvan told them.

Indeed it was.
