If you are looking for something to boost your winter spirits, the music of Vancouver’s own Gospel Boys is sure to do it. Their skills, together with a repertoire of music with rich dominant vocals and strong harmonies, will enchant and delight Aldergrove in a concert here on Feb. 9.

An 18-member a cappella chorus, the “Boys” began performing throughout the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley in 2008. They are all members of the very popular Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, with whom they perform 12 to 18 concerts per year.

The ensemble includes lead, tenor, baritone, and bass sections. They perform traditional hymns, spirituals, as well as gospel pieces. Duets and quartets such as the V.I.P. Quartet (Voices In Praise) add variety to their musical programs.

On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Gospel Boys will be performing a benefit concert at St. Dunstan Anglican Church, 3025 – 264 Street. Tickets, which include a three-course spaghetti dinner, are $20. Call 604-856-5393 for tickets or for more information.

All proceeds from the concert will go to support outreach programs such as Garden to Table and Messy Church.
