The Outgames are being held during the last week of July in Vancouver this year, and Out in Harmony will be performing at the opening ceremonies! We are inviting all our friends to come join us as we form a mass choir to kick off this exciting event and show the world what a great choral city Vancouver is.
We will be performing O Canada as well as one other piece. We will be holding 2 rehearsals prior to the Opening Ceremonies, and everyone participating needs to come to at least one rehearsal (though preferably both).
Rehearsals: Tuesdays at 7:30pm at the Vancouver Film School – 198 W. Hastings - Tuesday July 12th and Tuesday July 19th. Everyone participating MUST attend at least one of these rehearsals.
Performance: Monday, July 25th at 6pm – Vancouver Art Gallery
Please pass this on to all your singing friends who may be interested, and email our director Nicki at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning on participating or if you have any questions.
This is going to be so fabulous! We look forward to seeing everyone and taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity to gather together, sing, and show the world how Vancouver is brimming over with both music and pride!
Out in Harmony will sing at the “Raise Your Pride” fundraiser this Sunday, April 10, to help raise funds for the Royal City Pride Society and the Hospitality Project.
The show is open to the public and admission is by donation, so any friends and supporters of the choir would be welcome to take this opportunity to see us perform while supporting a terrific cause.
Aliqua is having a full length holiday show at the Vogue on Sunday, Dec 12th, at 7:30pm and OiH members are eligible for a special rate on tickets. Instead of $35, any member of a choir can get tickets for $25 each.

The choir also has a link with some free song downloads:
Carolling for a Cause:
F*ck Cancer invites singers to the Art Gallery for some carolling on December 16th; they’ve written some “revamped” carols that are all about early detection. They say:
It should be a really fun event, and we’d absolutely love “Out in Harmony” to be a part of it! We’re planning on having some media, bloggers, influencers etc in attendance to capture the moment, and it would be fantastic to have you…
Let me know if you’d like a sample of some of our song lyrics, but basically we’re just going to rally together for an hour or two and belt out some acapella christmas carols with “early detection” lyrics. We’re excited to hit the streets and hopefully inspire a few people to stay on top of their regular cancer screenings : ) You can check out our Facebook invite (sample lyrics are at the bottom of the thread!)
On Saturday, November 20, a small group of choir members sang at the Vancouver event marking Transgender Day of Remembrance. There were similar events all over the world, memorializing and remembering those who have been killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. We were honoured to be included.
(As you can see, it was so well-attended, there was barely room for us to sing.)
Out in Harmony sang to walkers at the recent Walk For Life on Sunday, September 19th. Here are some shots from the day!
