King’s University College will be celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary with a musical event on Saturday April 1st. The special concert features the award-winning King’s University College Chamber Choir and local-legend Rick McGhie at 7:30pm in the Joanne and Peter Kenny Theatre at King’s University College, 266 Epworth Ave. The choir is the proud recipient of the 2016 Jack Richardson London Music Award for best choral group (classical).

The Chamber Choir will be performing Canadian folk music from coast to coast to honour Canada’s heritage and diversity. The event aims to bring together Canadians from all historical backgrounds, old and new.

Admission to this event is by freewill donation with proceeds going to the Christ the King University Parish Refugee Sponsorship Initiative.

Established in September 2010, the King's University College Chamber Choir consists of auditioned choral singers from the King's University College community and from the wider Western University and London communities. The choristers perform choral works in a variety of styles and genres throughout the ages. The desired outcome is for artistic and musical growth, and to foster a deeper appreciation of choral literature both for choristers and audience members.  The choir is also dedicated to reaching out to the community by donating the proceeds of their performances to designated charitable organizations.

Rick McGhie is a legend for decades of alumni in London and area. He has been playing for audiences of students and alumni for over 40 years. He is known for putting his own spin on classics from the 60s and 70s and encourages audience interaction at his shows.
