Celebrating music and community

St. Andrew's United Church

Vocal Alchemy’s first concert of the 2021-22 season was a celebratory return to form—not only the choir's first live performances since February 2020, but also marking the beginning of Vocal Alchemy's 20th season! "Back Home" included two short afternoon concerts on the themes of singing and community, bringing Vocal Alchemy home to its original rehearsal and performance venue, St. Andrew's United Church.

The program included a number of favourite pieces from the past five years, along with music the choir had rehearsed online during the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert featured a performance of Brian Tate's We Are One, with lyrics newly revised by the composer, as well as the Alberta premiere of Joy will lead you by Vocal Alchemy's own Stuart Beatch.
