Corazón offers in-the-round experience at Touchstones Nelson

Corazón, Nelson’s celebrated 66-member youth choir, will encircle the interior of Gallery A and perform four pieces.

Audiences will be literally surrounded by song at 66/360 (sixty-six singers, three hundred and sixty degrees) at Touchstones Nelson on Saturday, April 12.

Corazón, Nelson’s celebrated 66-member youth choir (age range 13 to 21), will encircle the interior of Gallery A and perform four pieces. Listeners 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.The singers will perform the same 20-minute show five times (at 1:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3 p.m., 3:30 p.m.) for a new audience each time.

Touchstones’ current exhibit, Found: The Art of Re-Use, will provide a provocative backdrop for the performance.

Now in its third year, this annual choral experience in the gallery is already becoming legendary. Last year’s performances sold out early and received ecstatic reviews from audience members.

Tickets are $10 available only at the front desk of Touchstones Nelson (no tickets will be sold over the phone or online). The gallery is open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
