Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir – The Return of Soul Gospel

Tickets: Adults $30, students/seniors $25, children 12 & under $10. Available online now or by calling 1-800-838-3006

“Our 15th season has been nothing short of spectacular,” says Gail Suderman, Artistic Director of Good Noise. “We decided to celebrate our success by bring together two of Canada’s most powerful gospel singers as guest artists for our grand finale. Dawn and Warren don’t get the chance to sing together very often, so to have them both available was a minor miracle, given their very busy performing schedules —and having them both on stage along with Good Noise and the Good Noise gospel band will be exhilarating beyond belief. The Return of Soul Gospel will be a concert like no other and audiences for these two performances will be on their feet singing right along with us!”

Award-winning, JUNO-nominated Canadian recording artist Flandez describes his music simply as “songs with purpose”. Born in Yellowknife, Flandez grew up singing in the church, steeped in the rich tapestry of gospel music. Flandez has opened for the likes of Joss Stone and the late James Brown. Flandez’s songs have also been featured on the hit television series Being Erica, and campaigns for Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister. His most recent single, “Born for Greatness” features Riverdale actor KJ Apa.

A winner of the Western Canada Music Awards for her album “Say Something,” Pemberton performs nationally at major festivals and in concerts across the country. Pemberton has deep musical roots that take her immense voice from gospel and soul to jazz, funk and world music. She has become a staple of the Vancouver music scene and can often be found giving it her all as a vocalist, teacher, and facilitator.

Accompanying Good Noise, Pemberton and Flandez in this highly anticipated concert will be Michael Kalanj (Hammond B3), Laurence Mollerup (bass), Elliot Polsky (drums), Ingrid Stitt (saxophones), and Good Noise Artistic Director Gail Suderman (piano).
