Rhythm '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, Alina Orraca, Patty Cuyler, Mollie Stone, Richard Nace and many wonderful Vancouver musicians.

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!)

•open to singing all styles of music and in different languages

•love to come together in community and support other singers

•willing to sing without their music! (We perform everything off book)

Rehearsals: Wed evenings from 7:30-9:30pm

Singers are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances.

Absences do happen but it is strongly recommended not to miss more than 3 rehearsals in a term. If you miss more than 3, Karla will determine whether you are able to perform in the concert. We now have the option of attending rehearsals over Zoom if you need to miss or feel unwell!

Fees: $200 per term  ($400 for a full season)

Terms: Each term is 14 weeks long and we perform at least once a term.
