I’ve been a HUGE fan of the lovely ladies of West Vancouver’s Pandora’s Vox for close to 15 years now and I can’t say enough. Performing this past week at the Kay Meek Centre in “Gifted” with their partner vocal ensemble Espiritu, the group has grown into one of the most entertaining and professional choir organizations in the country. From impressive pieces like “Lux Aurumque” (my fave) to silly seasonal songs like “Fruitcake”, this group never fails to deliver. Choir leader Gillian Hunt, who also thrilled audiences with her special rendition of “Little Drummer Boy”, was honoured in a surprise presentation by the members who, without her knowledge, nominated her for the BC Choral Federation’s prestigious Amy Ferguson Award. Hunt was presented with the award during the Friday show.



01 – Let’s hear it for the boys of Espiritu, namely Eric Lorenz, left, Len Christiansen, Doug Giles and Roman Czemerys. 02 – Singing as part of the Espiritu ensemble are Ann Louise Filbert, left, Allan Wilson, “Bad” Gillian Boothroyd (wink) and Tom Keast. 03 – West Vancouver’s Lois Brymer, left, Dawn Demery and Alison Purvis get ready to take the stage cabaret style. 04 – Pandora’s Vox’s foxes Laurel Walker, left, and Karen Dy are both featured vocalists. 05 – Star accompanist Anita Comba, left, and director Gillian Hunt, seen here with her new award, are two of the main reasons this group sounds sooooooo good. 06 – Vancouver police Const. and piper Tim Fanning, left, joins drummer Gary Mussatto and the group on stage as part of the band. 07 – Choreographer and vocalist Romana Vuk, left, poses with Sharon Ong who can belt out a gospel song better than Queen Latifah. 08 – Featured soloist Gilly Tupling is a soprano whose voice reaches up to the angels.
