National Award Winning  
 INDIEKÖR Show Has Its Last Run
Thursday, June 9th in Victoria + 
Saturday, June 11th in Vancouver
 
 
 
Vancouver, BC  – The Coastal Sound Youth Choir is pleased to announce the return of Indiekör for the fifth year in a row! Indiekör 2016 is set to take place in Victoria on Thursday, June 9th at Oak Bay United Church and at The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver on Saturday, June 11th. This will be the final year for the Indiekör concert series, so get your tickets soon as it’s sure to be a sell-out! Full show details are listed below.
 
Featuring 65 singers aged 14-22, and local indie mainstays The Salteens, Indiekör is an innovative cross-pollination of classical choral music and indie rock. This year’s show will feature music by: The Zolas, Vampire Weekend, The Shins, Grimes, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Arcade Fire and more! 
 
Indiekör is the brainchild of noted Vancouver choral conductor, Carrie Tennant. The show evolved out of Tennant’s desire to explore the artistry of popular music alongside the classical choral canon and after five years of creating this event, it seems to be getting its due. The show has received much critical acclaim and accolades over the years and Tennant and the Coastal Sound Youth Choir recently received the National Choral Award for Outstanding Innovation for their work on the Indiekör shows. 2016 will be the last year for this groundbreaking concert series and the choir is planning to end things on a high note! 
 
 “This is our fifth and final year of Indiekör,” explains Tennant. “We have met the most amazing people and had the most phenomenal experiences working on this show together, and we definitely plan to go out with a bang!”
 
Indiekör 2016 is a show you don’t want to miss! Join the Coastal Sound Youth Choir for Indiekör 2016 with special guests The Salteens on Thursday, June 9th in Victoria and Saturday, June 11th in Vancouver. Tickets are on sale now at: victoria.snapd.com (Victoria) & voguetheatre.com (Vancouver).
