A Good Noise Christmas

Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir performs this weekend

Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir presents their annual concert, Something To Treasure — A Good Noise Christmas, Dec. 9 and 10 at Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver, and Dec. 11 at Fraserview MB Church in Richmond.

This year, Good Noise is also welcoming Abbotsford ensemble, The Alumni Project, as guest artists.

“Evey year when our Christmas concerts wrap up. I’m pulled aside by audience members who tell me that their holidays simply wouldn’t be complete without this Good Noise tradition,” said Gail Suderman, artistic director and instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langley campus.

“As concert-goers fill the pews, singing along with hands clapping and bodies swaying, their warm, uplifting energy is palpable. People from all walks of life, no matter what their belief, find inspiration in the sound of gospel music, which makes it the ultimate style of music for getting into the spirit of the season.”

Accompanying musicians of this event will be Michael Kalanj (organ), Laurence Mollerup (bass), Elliot Polsky (drums), Ingrid Stitt (saxophone) and Suderman (piano).

Good Noise has been spreading its infectious joy with audiences since 2004, performing with Barbara Streisand, David Foster, Josh Groban, and Holly Cole, and appearing on programs such as CBC, Global TV and Bravo.
