The Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir (GNVGC) presents Soul Gospel II on June 3 featuring Vancouver’s Juno-nominated vocalist Warren Dean Flandez.
Here are five reasons we think you should go:
1Warren Dean Flandez
Fresh off his 2017 Juno nomination for contemporary Christian/gospel album of the year, Flandez’s smooth style and funky beats will entertain audiences with soul favourites from the likes of Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke and more, along with his own original work.
2Back by popular demand
Celebrating the best of two timeless genres – soul & gospel – Soul Gospel II is the follow-up to last year’s sold-out concert.
3The power of Good Noise
GNVGC’s 90+ voices draws the listener in with their fervent call & response style, improvisation, and vocals. With a program steeped in the rich traditions of gospel, soul and R&B, audiences may find it impossible to resist singing and dancing along.
4The prowess of Gail Suderman
To see Gail Suderman, the artistic director of GVNGC, accompany close to 100 singers on just a piano, all the while singing and directing, is an impressive sight.
5Vancouver loves gospel music
The sold-out success of last year’s Soul Gospel concert proved Vancouver is hungry for more, and this second installment is no doubt the beginning of a musical tradition.
Soul Gospel II plays at Vancouver’s Christchurch Cathedral (690 Burrard St, Vancouver) on June 3 at 3:00pm & 7:30pm. Visit http://goodnoisevgc.com for tickets and information.
