THE MAGIC OF YULE
(November 29 and 30 at Canadian Memorial United Church)
More than 70 voices converge to blow the roof off as the Universal Gospel Choir holds its annual concert. The community-based chorus mixes it up with carols, gospel hits, and pop songs, all performed with extra soul.
(December 5 at the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza)
Wear your woollies and bring your holiday spirit as the carolling competition moves to a new location, raising funds for May’s Place, a Downtown Eastside hospice. For a $5 donation to the family-friendly outdoor event, spectators can vote for a choir to make it to the finals. Returning fan favourites include Notre Dame Platinum Girls and MomChoir.
