An Okanagan choir is providing a solution for those feeling stressed, in need of a time out from their busy lifestyle, or just looking for something different on the music scene.

Chorealis Vocal Ensemble presents A Moving Stillness, an unaccompanied, self-directed presentation of meditative sacred music from the Renaissance period to the present.

It will include songs by such composers as Palestrina, Byrd, Tallis, Whitaker, and the Okanagan’s own Sandra Wilmot.

“This will be a new experience for both the choir and audience,” said Diana Bainbridge, with Chorealis. “The one-hour program takes place in subdued lighting, with no intros, intermission, or applause. Pieces will flow seamlessly from one to the next.”

Creating beautiful music together has been the desire of the men and women of Chorealis since its inception in 2008.

Members hail from various parts of the Okanagan and rehearse weekly in Vernon.

Chorealis has performed at seniors’ residences, North Okanagan Hospice House, various local choral events, Kelowna’s Cascade of Choirs, and on CBC Radio.

Most recent concerts include Chorealis Sings (2013), and Pathways to Love (2014).

A Moving Stillness takes place Saturday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 1406 32nd Ave., Vernon.

Tickets are $10 at the Bean Scene, from members, and at the door.
