Sooke choir brings modern love to Parksville

The performance will express the chaotic and turbulent emotion that is love

The Sooke Community Choir is bringing their Up-Island Spring Concert performance of #modernlove to St. Edmund’s Anglican Church (407 Wembley Rd., Parksville) on May 11.

#Modernlove is the Sooke Community Choir’s powerful new show expressing the chaotic and turbulent emotion that is love. Through fabulous arrangements of current pop hits and rock classics like emotional ballads by Christina Perri, Elton John and Meghan Trainor to the passion of A Great Big World and Elton John and the zaniness of the B-52s, this show will tug at your heartstrings.

Come and experience this highly successful 50-voice choir and the dazzling instrumental work of pianist Kathy Russell and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Poynter all under the masterful leadership of talented Artistic Director Bruce Ruddell.

The show begins at 3 p.m. and tickets are available at the door.
