Bike Songs – Benefit Concert

Saturday September 23 | 7:30pm
Tickets: $20.00 from www.eventbrite.ca

The Argyle Embargo | Christ Church Cathedral Choir Delica Cee | Anna Whelan | Rupert Lang | Gail Suderman | Chor Leoni Men’s Choir | Linda Poligono Webster| Sister Says | Clarity

Featuring indie bands, classical artists, drag divas, and choral groups performing original compositions and songs ranging from Tom Waits and Melanie to Gretchaninov and Elgar, Bike Songs culminates in a mass performance of Queen’s Bicycle Race – and it’s all for a great cause.

Bike Songs is a benefit concert in support of the Cathedral’s Wheels for Wellness campaign, providing bicycles and equipment for community health workers in remote African villages of Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi & Mozambique.

You are part of the performance – bring your bike bell!

And another a perk! (just in case you actually needed more…) Parking will be available at Park Place Parkade from 4-8pm for a $5 rate with code: 1465.
 
Park Place Parkade (Off Hornby – between Georgia & Dunsmuir Lot #295) Re-entry to the parkade is via the glass doors at Park Place (666 Burrard) – Buzz security if the doors are locked and ask for the parkade. 

 

This project is the result of a 6:1 matching grant secured by the Anglican Church’s relief and development agency the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) from Global Affairs Canada. While the Cathedral has already successfully raised over $10,000 to date, monies generated by this concert will provide cell phones and backpacks with medical supplies for the community health care workers.
