So happy to be a part of this annual fundraising concert event – now worldwide online

“Connecting Through Song” Online Mozambique Benefit Concert with Wavelengths Choir, Joe Jencks, Ann Mortifee and Shari Ulrich

Saturday, June 27, 2020, at 7:00pm  directed by: Cathy Baker, Dick Jackson and Denis Donnelly with special guests: Joe Jencks, Ann Mortifee and Shari Ulrich

The Gettin’ Higher Choir & Wavelengths Community Choir present their annual concert for Mozambique, as a combined effort. The choirs will present songs ranging from neo-folk to Canadian classic rock, from Ukraine to Africa, in the premiere showing of their “virtual choir” recordings. Our guest artists will perform live from their home studios.

GHC co-directors Dick Jackson and Cathy Baker, and Wavelengths director Denis Donnelly, organized the concert to continue over 20 years of fundraising for The Caia Connection.  Joe Jencks is a celebrated American folk singer based in Chicago who has toured Vancouver Island three times, including once with the trio Brother Sun.  World-celebrated singer-songwriter Ann Mortifee is a longtime friend and champion of the GHC and the Caia Connection, being our first guest artist in 1999. Juno award-winning Shari Ulrich is one of B.C.’s most-beloved singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, and has shared the stage with the GHC twice before.

Tickets: To attend the concert on Zoom, click this link to register, make sure you have Zoom installed on your device, and watch for an update email on the day of the concert. We also plan to stream on Facebook Live and YouTube. See, or the GHC Facebook page or YouTube channel.  Instead of buying tickets, on June 27 please make a donation to The Caia Connection through Canada Helps. Every dollar raised in June can help The Caia Connection win a $20,000 bonus!

Welcome to forward this to friends or family worldwide — all welcome!
