When we join diverse voices in song, we build a strong community and a better world. Come hear it for yourself when the Lila Music Community Choir hosts an afternoon of song in support of the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre in Cowichan Bay. Headlining the event will be special guests, Coastline, a string ensemble comprised of BC’s top young musicians ranging from ages 14-21 coached and mentored by internationally acclaimed fiddler, and led by Juno winner, Ivonne Hernandez. The choir will also be joined by local singer, Genevieve Charbonneau, recent winner of the BC song writing contest; Paul Ruszel and his trio; and Corbin Keep, the Wild Cellist.
The Lila Music Community Choir (joythroughmusic.com) is safe, nurturing environment where people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and religious dedication come together through the simple joy of music. Directed by the exuberant and playful Cari Burdett, the choir is part of the worldwide Ubuntu Choirs Network, a collective of conductors and singers who believe that lifting our voices in song is an essential human birthright. Cari will lead the choir in performing songs from around the world, as well as one of her new original compositions, Hernandez.
The Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre is a project of the Cowichan Land Trust, a non-profit society that helps people understand and protect nature. Proceeds from the concert will go towards providing experiential learning opportunities for children on the shores of the estuary.
