Vancouver Chamber Choir Candlelight and Wine Gala

Jan 27, 2007

By Catherine Barr


The Vancouver Chamber Choir's annual Candlelight and Wine gala is one of the most important fundraisers of the year for the organization. This year's theme, "Ye Greate Saint Louis Concerte of 1874" was held last Saturday at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and featured performances by the choir, cocktails, canapes and a silent auction. Dressed in beautiful costumes depicting the era, the award winning choir entertained guests and VIPs with a selection of songs that were probably the equivalent of what we call pop music today. Bravo.
