The Coastal Sound Youth Choir Presents: INDIEKÖR
Sunday, June 14th at The Vogue Theatre
Watch Indiekör Perform Arcade Fire – ‘Intervention’
Vancouver, BC – The Coastal Sound Youth Choir is thrilled to announce the return of Indiekör to Vancouver for its fourth year in a row! Indiekör 2015 is set to take place on Sunday, June 14th at The Vogue Theatre. Full show details are listed below.
Featuring 65 singers aged 14-22, and local indie mainstays The Salteens, Indiekör is an innovative blend of classical choral music and indie rock. This year’s show will feature music by Stars, Bon Iver, Sergei Rachmaninoff, The New Pornographers, Patrick Watson, Claudio Monteverdi, Hey Ocean, The Zombies, Imant Raminsh, Florence and the Machine, and Dan Mangan.
Indiekör is the brainchild of noted Vancouver choral conductor, Carrie Tennant. The event, now in its fourth year, evolved out of Tennant’s desire to explore the artistry of popular music alongside the classical choral cannon. Indiekör a live musical performance that can’t be described, it must be experienced.
“People keep using the word ‘crossover’,” Tennant explains. “And while I understand that that is how they are able to comprehend or frame what we are doing, we don’t see this concert as a crossover project. There is a parallel between what were are doing with Indiekör, and how a popular song was shared and experienced in the past. In the Renaissance, people would gather together at social functions to sing the popular madrigals and chansons of the time. What we are doing with Indiekör isn’t much different. It’s just that people don’t gather together socially to sing anymore. We do! And we wanted to share it with Vancouver.”
Indiekör is a show you don’t want to miss! Join the Coastal Sound Youth Choir with special guests The Salteens on Sunday, June 14th at The Vogue Theatre for Indiekör 2015. Tickets are on sale now at: voguetheatre.com
