A Fundraising Performance of DUKE ELLINGTON’S SACRED MUSIC
Benefitting the Work of First United Church
FEATURING: Dee Daniels • Marcus Mosely • Fred Stride Orchestra • the Sacred Music Gospel Choir • Sojourners • Tap Dancer: Alex Dugdale
Duke Ellington considered the Sacred Concert to be amongst his most significant accomplishments and devoted the last years of his life to performing the programs hundreds of times throughout the world. This will be the third year that this full concert performance of the Sacred Music of Duke Ellington has been performed in Western Canada. Rick Cluff, Emcee for the evening last year was at a loss for words and many described the event as “spectacular”. An audience, of almost a thousand was treated to a magnificent, soulful performance.
Dee Daniels and Marcus Mosely with the Fred Stride Orchestra will bring their gospel background, blues flavouring and unique styling. Proceeds will benefit the work of First United Church which has supported those most in need in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for 125 years providing shelter and services for more than 600 people daily.
Don’t miss this spectacular concert on Friday, November 18th, 8 PM at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church, Vancouver.
