70s music in Parksville

The Sooke Community Choir will be performing on May 28

The Sooke Community Choir is coming to Parksville, and we invite you to a concert showcasing music from the 1970s. On the last weekend in May, hear your favourites reverberate in the St. Anne & St. Edmund Church.

The 1970s are considered the most creative decade of popular music in the Western world. The program includes songs from John Denver, Neil Simon, The Eagles, The Beatles, Billy Joel, Neil Young, John Denver, ABBA, Stephen Sondheim and Carole King.

The choir’s artistic director, Bruce Ruddell, will conduct the concert and you won’t want to miss the solo piano performance of “All That Jazz” from the 70s musical Chicago by accompanist Kathy Russell.

Don’t miss the 1970s – ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE concert at the St. Anne & Edmund Church on Saturday, May 28, 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 at the door. People under the age of 29 get in free.
