An upcoming choral concert in South Delta will help raise funds for the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) – South Delta bursary program.
On Wednesday, Jan. 25 at the Equinox Theatre at South Delta Secondary, CFUW presents the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, directed by Jonathan Quick and the South Delta Sounds Jazz and Concert Choirs directed by Danielle Hamilton.
The show starts at 7 p.m.
Since the 1960s CFUW has offered more than 100 bursaries to local female students. Every one to two years, the South Delta club, which is one of 21 clubs in B.C., and one of about 100 clubs across Canada, offers bursaries to female graduating students from SDSS and Delta Secondary, as well as to mature local women who are beginning, or returning to, post-secondary studies.
After pausing their community fundraising projects for almost three years due to the pandemic, CFUW South Delta members are delighted to be joining forces once again with these two impressive choirs.
South Delta Sounds Jazz and Concert Choir is an award-winning student choir from SDSS.
In March 2020 in Hawaii, the SDSS music department won three gold medals, one each for concert, jazz and band.
This year, the SDSS choirs will perform at the Con Brio Music Festival in Whistler in April and are planning a trip to New York City in 2024.
The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir is a diverse group of individuals from different cultures and backgrounds, who share a passion for singing, and who perform both traditional and contemporary choral songs. They often perform benefit concerts for various worthwhile projects.
CFUW South Delta eagerly looks forward to welcoming the community to enjoy the music of these two wonderful choirs.
Tickets for the show are $20 for general admission and $10 for students and children, available for purchase at Black Bond Books in Ladner, Centre Stage Accessories in Tsawwassen or call Shelley at 604-946-5559. Some tickets will also be available for cash purchase at the door.
