Love it or hate it, we can’t deny that television has changed the world. It educates us, entertains us, and bombards us with advertisements; It divides us, brings us together, and makes the most distant places seem nearby; It shapes our view of the world, affects what we consider to be important issues, expands our horizons with new ideas, tells us what to think, and challenges us to think for ourselves .
Please join Out in Harmony as we sing favorite songs, jingles, and themes from television shows both old and new. It will be a toe tapping walk down memory lane as we resurrect both childhood favorites and current hits, and you will leave singing songs you thought you had forgotten as you head home at the end of the night. “As Seen On TV” will be held Saturday, June 15th at 7:30 pm at Central Presbyterian Church (1155 Thurlow Street -which is wheelchair accessible). Tickts are $15 with $10 concession tickets also available. You can get your tickets from choir members, at Little Sisters’ Emporium, or at the door.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by June 3rd.
As Seen on TV!!
Save the Date:
Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 7:30pm
Central Presbyterian Church @ 1155 Thurlow, in Vancouver
With this concert, we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with a selection of catchy tunes, earworms, and jingles which are part of what has made television so darn irresistible for the last 60+ years.
Watch for more information coming soon.
Thank you to everyone who came out for our January 2013 concert, Eh?, and made it such a success!
We’d like to especially mention thanks to Nicki our director, Dan our accompanist, Blanche our sound dude, Sandra & Galen and the other friendly folks at Central Presbyterian, Jonathan for help setting up the lights, the many volunteers who worked diligently before, during, and after to ensure the whole thing ran smoothly, and of course our audience!
We had a great time, and are looking forward to doing it again!
Our next concert will be Saturday June 15, 2013, also at Central Presbyterian at 7:30pm, so mark your calendars now. It is sure to be a fun time, and we hope you’ll join us.
Out in Harmony’s January concert is this Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 7:30 pm at Central Presbyterian Church in Vancouver!
Eh? ~ The Can Con-Cert is bursting with music by Canadian Composers and arrangers, some of whom are familiar (ie Barenaked Ladies, Neil Young, Stan Rogers, Rufus Wainwright, the list goes on…), some of whom are local (ie Brian Tate, Stephen Chatman, Karen New, and many more), and all of whom are fabulous musicians who compose/write/arrange wonderful works that are a pleasure to sing and a joy to listen to. We have music which may give you the giggles, music that may leave you sighing, and some music that might just make you want to get up and dance.
The doors open at 7pm, and tickets are available at the door, or at Little Sisters’ Emporium (at 1238 Davie Street). The church is at 1155 Thurlow Street in Vancouver (convenient to transit along Burrard or Davie Streets), and the accessible entrance is around back. We will have baskets of Canadian-themed items to be raffled off before the end of the night, and a finger food reception afterwards. General Admission tickets are $15, with $10 concession tickets also available. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Please join us for this wonderful concert, and support Out in Harmony, -Vancouver’s Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Lesbian, & Friends Adult Community Choir.
Out in Harmony’s January 19th concert is called “Eh? ~ The Can Con-cert”.
Mark your calendars and plan to be at Central Presbyterian Church in Vancouver on the evening of January 19th, because it’s going to be THE place to be!
Out in Harmony, your favorite local Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Lesbian, and Friends choir will be bringing you an evening of music composed and/or arranged by Canadian musicians and composers. There will be a wide selection of styles and topics, and you won’t want to miss it. General admission tickets are $15, and concession tickets are $10. (Or if you are interested in volunteering and getting in for free, contact Denise our volunteer coordinator at email@example.com )
We look forward to seeing you all there, eh?
The PRIDE festival this year was very hot, very crowded, and very fun. Thanks to everyone who took part, whether by being in the parade, spectating, visiting or staffing the booths, or just hanging out and soaking up the festivities.
Though we as a choir are not rehearsing over the summer, several of our members & friends will be getting together on Sunday August 19th at the outdoor showing of Dirty Dancing in David Lam park (1300 blockof Pacivic Blvd in Yaletown). The movie starts at dusk (around 8:30pm), and a bunch of us will be staking out a good spot early and gathering around 6:30 for a picnic before hand. Come and join us for food, fun, and singing along with the movie. Everyone welcome!
I hope everyone has a joyous and exuberant PRIDE this year! Please be sure to visit our booth at the Sunset Beach Pride Festival on Sunday, August 5th. We’ll have friendly choir members there happy to talk to you, answer questions, and give you the inside scoop on what the choir is really like.
Please note there has been some question about our booth’s location this year as we have gotten shifted around a little, but the latest update, as of 5:30pm Saturday August 4th, is that we will be close to our usual location, backed up against Beach Avenue, about midway down the line of booths.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Our wonderfully successful concert ‘Heroes & Villains’ was held Saturday June 9, 2012. The rousing closing number was “Harriet Tubman” by Walter Robinson, arranged by Kathleen McGuire, and for an encore, we sang “Shine A Little Light” by Andy Beck.
Though there is no video of the show iteself, we did manage to capture our choir rehearsing these two songs just a few days prior to the concert. You can see them here on YouTube: Harriet Tubman: http://youtu.be/ZBIFVqWXEe0 & Shine A Little Light: http://youtu.be/_T7jQhu2a2g
