Gabriola Chamber Ensemble presents...Gabriola POPS! 2016: “HAPPY”

Chamber Ensemble

Press Release

Tuesday, July 12 2016

“Happy” is a multi-era tribute to feeling good! Under the direction of Leah Hokanson, this promises to be another stellar performance in what has become a sold-out event on the island year after year.

The concept of POPS! is to literally have POP-up singers emerge in the summer. The group gets together and prepares over a few long, intensive rehearsals, rather than months and months of shorter practices. The songs are upbeat and chosen to move the audience, both emotionally, and physically. Folks were literally unable to sit still in their seats last year, and this year aims to set the bar even higher. The performers are going to have a lot of fun and share that energy with the audience.

Featuring fabulous local musicians, with performances by the Gabriola POPS! Choir and soloists, all backed by the POPS! Band, the Concert takes place at the Gabriola Community Hall on Friday, July 15, at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door. Adults $10, Youth $5, and Families (2 adults / 2 kids) $25. Don’t miss out on this incredible event! “If it makes you HAPPY, we’re going to sing about it!”
