World Village Gospel Choir presents: Bring It!, a concert of Gospel and World Music at 2 p.m. Sat. November 29th at Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton St. This concert is heavy on the Gospel Music side and features two songs from the Chicago area: The Lord is my Light from the renowned Chicago Mass Choir and O Lord Raise Me Up, from the Baha'i Devotional Choral Concert series in that same great city. Two African songs, the celebrated Siyahamba and Kwangena Thina Bo ("we come in, the Spirit is moved) bookend an ancient Icelandic hymn, Heyr Himna Smiour ("hear, smith of heavens"). This will be a concert with some rocking gospel tunes, some introspective devotional music, and some vibrant African songs. We are fortunate to be backed up by an outstanding band featuring Ron Paley on piano, Daniel Koulack on bass, Anthony Giancola on drums, and Henry Zacharias on percussion.|
World Village Gospel Choir (WVGC) is coming off an eventful spring season. In June they were featured in the APTN National broadcast of Aboriginal Day Live from Winnipeg's historic Forks, and the very next day, members of the Choir sang back up for Hall of Fame rock band Heart at Winnipeg's MTS Centre.
WVGC Director Rachel Landrecht "There are no other species, according to our current knowledge, that sing the way that we do. Our ability to create music and sing together is something that makes us unique in our humanity. The goal of our choir is to have each singer expressing themselves with their full voice; we don't blend by softening our tone, we blend by trying to meet each other in the overtone series of the higher harmonics that occur when we sing with full resonance. This creates an excitement and electricity in the air. You will leave our concert feeling uplifted and regenerated, an act of heart-to-heart resuscitation to send you forward into the coming season. "
