Chorealis Vocal Ensemble’s fall performance is A Moving Stillness, a new experience for the choir and audience.

As the title implies, this will be a time of sacred, meditative music by such composers as Palestrina, Gjeilo, Whitaker and the Okanagan’s own Sandra Wilmot.

To create beautiful music together has been the desire of the men and women of Chorealis Vocal Ensemble since its inception in 2008. The 12 singers come from many parts of the Okanagan – Salmon Arm, Armstrong, Vernon, Lumby, Winfield and Kelowna. They are a self-directed group who love to get together to make music, and equally love to sing for audiences who appreciate their unique a cappella sound.

Over the years, Chorealis has performed at seniors’ residences, Vernon Hospice House, various local choral events, Cascade of Choirs in Kelowna and their most recent concerts, Chorealis Sings in 2013 and Pathways of Love in 2014.

A Moving Stillness will be performed at St. John’s Anglican Church at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 8.

Tickets are $10 and will be available at Acorn Music.

For further information, call 250-832-7921 Salmon Arm or visit the Chorealis website at www.chorealis.ca.
