What a weekend!
After two extraordinary THIS JOY I HAVE concerts we as a choir are still buzzing! It was our sincere pleasure to sing for you and bring you our most vivid repertoire to date.
Who can forget the hauntingly beautiful Jewish song “Avinu Malkeinu”, or the massively grooving Gospel/R&B hit “Na Na Okay”, and of course our finale “Everybody Dancing” – which had, you guessed it, everyone dancing!
Huge shout-outs to our amazing leader and the Musical Director of UGC Lonnie Delisle, and the band that supported us in legendary style including: Michael Creber on piano, Jay Leonard Juatco on guitar, Jay Esplana on drums, Jason Nickel on bass, and our own Lonnie Delisle blazing it out on the Hammond organ.
And a very special thank you to our volunteers, tech people, camera crew, photographers and others that made these concerts possible!
If you liked what you heard at our concerts and want to join our choir family you’re in luck – we are auditioning!
We are looking for singers who ideally have some choir experience, and are able to commit to weekly rehearsals, which are held on Monday evenings from September through June.The ability to read music is not necessary, but certainly an asset. The ability to sing vocal parts (SATB) on pitch, is, of course a necessity!
We will be holding two rounds of auditions:
Monday, June 25th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
September, exact date to be announced.
Please email us: info@universalgospelchoir.

Not only are we Vancouver’s longest-lived community choir, but we are constantly making Gospel, Pop, Soul, Classical Choral and World music part of our repertoire and are deeply committed to social justice and a desire to share light and love through the beauty of music. What can be better than that?
