Add live choral music to your next Gala, Corporate or Community Event!
Coastal Sound Music Academy choirs have performed extensively at all kinds of events from formal concerts, professional commercial recordings, ceremonial events and international conferences, to informal appearances performing in unusual spaces like museums and art galleries. Our choirs have sung for audiences of all ages-from student audiences to adults, to government dignitaries. We performed O Canada at BC Place for the 102nd Grey Cup, so no event is too big nor too small!
We can also partner with other performers. We’ve sung with musica intima, Good Noise Gospel Choir, Vancouver Chamber Choir, Vancouver Cantata Singers and The Shirleys. Our Children’s Choirs were back up singers for Michael Bublé’s TV Holiday Special in 2013, and for JUNO award winning entertainer Norman Foote in 2014.
We’ve also performed for Burnaby Board of Trade, IKEA Coquitlam, Coquitlam Light the Hall events, Canada Day celebrations, Hemlock Printers, Vancouver 2010 Olympic Live Sites, Canada Pavilion; at Water’s Edge Festival 2009, 2010 and 2011; many National conferences held at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.
To help us respond to your inquiry, it is helpful if event organizers can provide answers to the following questions, where applicable:
- What is your event? Is it a conference, ceremony, concert or other type of event?
- When is your event?
- Where is your event?
- How long would the choir be needed?
- Would there be the opportunity for a brief technical rehearsal before your guests enter the space?
- What is the venue like: a large stage? a flat floor? outdoor? indoor?
- What size choir are you looking for? Children? Adults? Youth? Multi-generational?
- Is the performance intended to be a focus for your guests or simply ambient music?
- Will there be competing “sound” activities at the event?
- Are music selections at the discretion of the Music Director? It costs us significantly more in rehearsal time and music purchases if specific music is requested.
- Can you or your venue provide a piano or keyboard?
- Will a sound system be needed to hear the choir?
We are happy to tailor our live choral music performance to fit your specific needs. We can supply a keyboard and back line equipment upon request.
