Rhythym 'N' Roots
Rhythm ‘n’ Roots: An auditioned adult SATB world/roots music choir
Rhythm ‘N’ Roots is an adventurous, fun, hard-working, soulful and exuberant choir. We explore roots music from around the world – old and new – delighting in beautiful music from many vocal traditions. Rhythm ‘n’ Roots is a wonderful, supportive and warm community of singers who are dedicated and deeply curious around music, language and culture.
Karla started Rhythm ‘n’ Roots in 2013 and since then the choir has traveled to Cuba and worked with wonderful guest artists and conductors – Moira Smiley, Coco Love Alcorn, Kofi Gbolonyo, Michel Rivero, Patty Cuyler, Mollie Stone, Richard Nace and many wonderful Vancouver musicians. In the 2017-2018 season we will be collaborating with Coco Love Alcorn and Moira Smiley!
Rhythm ‘n’ Roots is for singers who are:
•committed, dedicated, passionate and curious
•looking for a unique and wholehearted choral experience
•have previous singing and choral experience
•have a good sense of rhythm and groove and a strong sense of pitch
•have some music reading abilities (not mandatory but helpful!)
