Hello! An A Cappella Evening with Cadence and Decoro
Saturday, May 9, 2020 | 8pm
Evergreen Cultural Centre, 1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam
The stage lights fall, the crowd goes quiet, and four harmonious voices rise up and fill the air. The melodies unfurl into something both familiar and fresh. What comes next may be a classic song by Joni Mitchell or Louis Prima. It may be an old bebop standard or cheeky arrangement of a 1980s hit. But these are arrangements like you’ve never heard them before—containing all the richness of a full band, but performed using only voices!
This is Cadence, Canada’s premiere vocal group. Based in Toronto, this a cappella ensemble has been wowing audiences across the country and around the world for over 20 years. The group’s five critically acclaimed studio albums, Home (2018), Cool Yule (2011), Speak Easy (2010), Twenty for One (2005), and Frost Free (2000) have won or been nominated for numerous awards, including three nods from the JUNO Awards and 10 from CARA, the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards.
Hello! introduces DeCoro, an effervescent 45-voice choir at Coastal Sound Music Academy, that will back up Cadence throughout the evening.
