Take Me to the Water is part of our 2019 Kelowna tour. Coastal Sound singers were inspired by the idea of being near Okanagan Lake, so they gathered music that represents a connection to water. In Sail Away you can almost feel the wind catch the sails as the choir takes off; Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat has the choir animated and acting; all 4 choirs join to sing Take Me To the Water a spiritual.
“There will be a song for everyone. We are singing a wide and wonderful variety of music, including Lady Antebellum’s I Was Here; Royal Canoe’s Walk Out On the Water; and a new work by Indigenous composer Deanna Gestrin, with text by Chief Dan George, composed especially for the choir.” – Diana Clark
