An array of Vancouver’s finest choirs gather on Sunday September 18 (3pm) to salute the role of Ryerson United Church in Vancouver’s abundant choral scene. For many years Ryerson has been the choral home and preferred performance and recording space of many of the city’s choirs. ReSounding Ryerson is a choral tribute and thank you to both a building and a church organization that has recognized and embraced music as an integral part of their mandate. All funds raised being donated to the ongoing refurbishment of the church.

Chor Leoni Men's Choir
