Rock 'n' roll dance follows choral concert at this Port Moody high school

Choral Connections' cabaret show "Through the Decades" is taking place May 27 at Heritage Woods Secondary.

A choir celebrating 10 years in the Tri-Cities will hold a concert — and a classic rock 'n' roll dance — in Port Moody this month.

The 72-member Choral Connections is set to perform a cabaret show titled Through the Decades at Heritage Woods Secondary (1300 David Ave.) on May 27.

President and founding member Terry Bates explained the choir started in 2013 with Michael Grice as conductor.

But after he returned to Montreal, Ingrid Gay — the music teacher at Heritage Woods — won an audition to replace him.

"She relates well to the choir," he told the Tri-City News.

Today, the ensemble meets at Trinity United Church in Port Coquitlam for its practices with founding pianist Vincent Lo.

And, like during the COVID-19 pandemic, the gatherings continue to be available on Zoom.

The curtain rises for Through the Decades at 7 p.m., followed by a dance in Heritage Woods Secondary's grand hall with tunes from the band Double Image.

The group is also raising funds through a raffle and 50–50 draw.

Tickets are $35/$20 and can be purchased through the show's page on Choral Connections' website.

Meanwhile, vocalists interested in joining Choral Connections in September can learn more about the group at the concert or via the website.
