We Live Here: Celebrating Coquitlam 125



Coquitlam BC, June 2, 2016 — Coastal Sound Music Academy Celebrates Coquitlam’s 125th Anniversary with We Live Here, Sunday, June 12th, 7:00 pm at Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam.


Celebrating the 125th anniversary of City of Coquitlam, Coastal Sound choirs tall to small examine where we live, our history and our hobbies, through the lens of choral music.


For Coastal Sound’s Artistic Director, Diana Clark, this concert is extra special. “I grew up in Coquitlam, in Ranch Park. In 45 years, I’ve watched this city grow up, from a ‘one strip-mall town’ to the bustling urban area that it is now. It’s been fun to reminisce with other Coquitlam residents, and to think about music that reflects this beautiful area that we call home.”


On weekends, Westwood Raceway— Canada’s first purpose-built road racing circuit— could always be heard from Clark’s childhood home. For this show, Clark has commissioned an arrangement of Little GTO by Ronnie and the Daytonas, to pay tribute to the track and it’s place in Coquitlam’s history.


Other special surprises include the world premieres of two new works, and a musical cameo performance by Coquitlam’s own Mayor Stewart! 


Coastal Sound’s adult choir, DeCoro will give a preview performance of a song commissioned and written by Coquitlam resident George Chung to celebrate Coquitlam’s 125th Anniversary.  This was funded by a grant provided by Spirit of Coquitlam and Coquitlam Foundation.
