Bring Out Your Inner Rock Star at Cool Choir Live!
Rock out with Cool Choir®, Calgary’s original adult rock and pop choir, at the Jube on Sunday, June 24.
Where can you go this summer to hear iconic songs by legendary artists and bands including Queen, Adele, One Republic, Justin Timberlake, Joni Mitchell, Bruno Mars and more, performed live in rich, spine-tingling harmony, and accompanied by a world class rock band? The Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium is where, on Sunday, June 24.
And if you think you know choirs, think again. Cool Choir takes the traditional choir concept and flips it on its head, welcoming shower singers, car singers and all those in between, into a non-auditioned, non-judgement, all-inclusive family-orientated community of like-minded people from all walks of life connected by a passion for singing, friendship — and a whole lot of laughter. In 2017, Cool Choir even recorded an original song for Canada 150, (Canada) I Feel Home, which was later made into a music video filmed in Calgary. Watch it here.
This June, pick up that hairbrush mic and come feel the contagious energy of Cool Choir, as more than 250 voices combine to fill the Jube with powerful new and re-imagined covers by some of rock and pop’s biggest stars. Sing along and dance in the aisles (if the mood takes you) or just sit back, relax and let those harmonies wash over you as the soulful voices of Cool Choir come together in “perfect harmony” and take you on a musical journey you’ll never forget. Check out this highlight’s video of last years’ show for a little teaser.
For the first time ever, Cool Choir will also be joined on-stage by live musicians as 2016 Canadian Country Music Association Bass Player of the Year nominee Justin Kudding and his world class five-piece rock band transform the sound of Cool Choir to a whole new level of awesome. The show also features dynamic guest artist Garett Gregory (a 2017 Alberta Country Music Award nominee) and upcoming Calgary singer-songwriter Steve Rokosh.
All songs have been arranged exclusively for Cool Choir by its creative director Jamie Serafi. British-born, Jamie arrived in Calgary in the summer of 2015 and launched Cool Choir in multiple communities across our great city in January of 2016. The concept has exploded in Calgary, and Serafi will soon be launching Cool Choir across Canada. If you haven’t yet heard Cool Choir perform under Jamie’s quirky directorship, you are in for a real treat.
Cool Choir Live! is a night of fun for the whole family, young and old, male and female. So get ready to rock out and sing with Cool Choir on a truly epic scale in this awe-inspiring, one-night-only fusion of voices, accompanied for the first time by live musicians. You’ll leave high on happiness!
Cool Choir Live!, Sunday June 24, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m., Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, 1415, 14 Ave NW, coolchoir.com
