Association of United Ukrainian Canadians Community Concert & Supper for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Sunday Nov 7 2010

Community Celebration
ASSOCIATION OF UNITED UKRAINIAN CANADIANS COMMUNITY CONCERT & SUPPER
Sunday November 7, 3pm
Ukrainian Hall, 805 E. Pender

The AUUC is pleased to present their season opening concert for the closing afternoon of the Festival. Featuring all of their performing arts groups, the Barvinok Choir, the Vancouver Folk Orchestra and the Dovbush Dancers, the concert offers a welcoming atmosphere of Ukrainian traditions. Enjoy this afternoon of lively music, invigorating dance, colourful costumes, and an array of special guests including: a welcome song with Squamish elder Sam George; the ferocious and compelling flamenco music and dance of Kelty McKerracher and Celina Tinio, baile (dance), Juan de Marias, toque (guitar), and Maria Avila, cante (song); and the internationally renowned recording artists, gospel trio The Sojourners (Khari McClelland, Marcus Mosely and Will Sanders). The Festival is thrilled to welcome back Marcus along with his fellow songmates, accompanied by guitarist Paul Pigat. While it wouldn’t exactly be right to call The Sojourners a new act—given that each member of the group has been in the music business for around fifty years—the sound, energy and commitment they conjure any time they get together would be the envy of singers half their ages. Echoes of doo wop, R&B, country and blues weave together with gospel to create a unique sound that has all but vanished from today’s world, www.thesojourners.ca. “These guys are as authentic as the well-worn pews and well-used Bibles stationed in any Church welcoming the sounds of Gospel songs. Rich and textured voices that harmonize along a rolling sea of sound waves; The Sojourners take you on a gentle walk down the back alleys and pathways of the soul and have you cathartically ending up on the other side.” – AnEVibe.com
Stay after the concert for the hall’s delicious traditional Ukrainian Supper. Concert and supper $15. Be sure to book your tickets in advance for this very popular event. For tickets call 604-879-2089.
