The Sunday@3 concert series presents a collaborative performance featuring two local singing groups.
On May 8 at the Ladner United Church, the Ladner Glee Club will join forces with the Jazzagals to share a wonderful mix of choral favourites.
The Glee Club started many years ago, meeting at Ladner United Church on Monday mornings. Under the direction of Mavis Weston, they are a very special, caring group of women who love singing choral arrangements in two and three-part harmony. Their main focus has been entertaining at retirement and care facilities in South Delta but more recently, have been performing a little further afield.
The Jazzagals formed five years ago, by virtue of their shared love of music and a strong desire to learn more about vocal jazz. With artistic director Gayle Rutt at the helm, they’ve expanded their repertoire to include swing tunes, bossa nova stylings, a cappella music, inspiring ballads, pop music, and of course, innovative scatting. As their music continues to grow and deepen, so too do their friendships. With much more to still learn on the horizon, the Jazzagals feel their love of vocal jazz and the many blessings of friendship will be the ties that bind them together for years to come.
The two ensembles are delighted to once again perform for this special concert and are confident that all who attend will leave feeling inspired and uplifted by the music. Thanks to Pat Rogers and Drusilla Harding for their continued efforts to organize these wonderful monthly community events.
The concert starts at 3 p.m. Admission is $10 cash at the door.
