Bri­tish Columbia Boys Choir Cel­e­brates 45 Years with Mem­o­rable Events in 2014

Westcoast Families - - Wcf News -

The Choir will be cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful his­tor­i­cal “cof­fee ta­ble” book to cel­e­brate the BCBC’s 45 years of teach­ing boys to sing and per­form. The BCBC are ask­ing alumni and their fam­i­lies to send in your favourite sto­ries from BCBC events, con­certs and tours, and th­ese will make up the ma­jor­ity of the book, along with pho­tos and his­tor­i­cal in­for­ma­tion about the Choir. The dead­line to sub­mit story sug­ges­tions and mem­o­rable events is Septem­ber 15, as they want to have this book fin­ished for De­cem­ber 1, so it can be sold dur­ing the Christ­mas hol­i­day sea­son. Please find the ques­tion­naire on the BCBC web­site, www­bcboyschoir.org. Of course they are also plan­ning a 45th Gala Cel­e­bra­tion Con­cert where you are in­vited to come and so­cial­ize and sing in the Alumni Choir un­der the di­rec­tion of the Artis­tic Di­rec­tor, Tony Araujo and Con­duc­tor Emer­i­tus, Ger­ald van Wyck. Mark the dates: May 17 & 18, 2014 (May long week­end). The BCBC will fin­ish the year with a Cross Canada Tour in July 2014 to cel­e­brate 45 years of singing, by per­form­ing in each prov­ince. They will be on the road for a month, longer than usual, and the boys will have an op­por­tu­nity to see our beau­ti­ful coun­try. The show is called O Canada Our Home – Songs & Sto­ries of Canada. The Choir is seek­ing spon­sors and donors for the BCBC Book, 45th Gala Con­cert, and the Choir’s Cana­dian Tour; if you work with a com­pany that spon­sors the arts, please con­tact Mar­got Holmes at the choir if you think they might sup­port BCBC’s 2014 goals. Your per­sonal on­go­ing sup­port of the Bri­tish Columbia Boys Choir is grate­fully ap­pre­ci­ated and needed. A tax-re­ceipt­able do­na­tion of $10 a month makes a dif­fer­ence to help­ing boys par­tic­i­pate. See www.bcboyschoir.org for more in­for­ma­tion.
