Yule Duel attracts thousands of spectators each year, and it’s quite the sight! Visitors wandering down Water Street will see 20 choirs with singers of all ages stationed along the way. They’ll be performing holiday season favorites sung in a range of languages and choral styles including rock, pop, gospel, and barbershop, as each choir tries to stave off elimination in the competition.

For a donation of $5.00, spectators can buy voting ballots to help their favourite choirs get into the finals for the dueling sing-offs. Funds raised will go to May’s Place, a hospice providing compassionate end-of-life care to the most vulnerable in Vancouver’s downtown eastside.

The evening includes special mainstage performances by Dutch Robinson and The Marcus Mosely Chorale.
