Chorus sings favourites

Nanaimo - A Cappella Plus performs its fall concert, String of Pearls: every song a gem Sunday (Nov. 4).

Spiritual and contemporary songs come to life through the mingled voices of A Cappella Plus Sunday (Nov. 4).

The group presents its fall concert, String of Pearls: every song a gem, 2:30 p.m. at Brechin United Church. For the performance the singers are revisiting their favourite songs from the past 33 years of performances in Nanaimo.

“We wanted to do a retrospective of some of our best songs in the more popular genres,” said Val Duthie, a member of A Cappella Plus, in an e-mail. “For us singing is a great pleasure in many different ways. There is a magic about live performance which is qualitatively different from anything else. Music of all kinds speaks to something very deeply ingrained in us.”

A Cappella Plus will perform songs such as Sing We and Chant it, Moon River, Can’t Buy Me Love and Unchained Melody.

Tickets are $15/ $10 for students and are available at the door or Fascinating Rhythm and the Quilted Duck.
