On Monday morning, David Bowie passed away at the age of 69. The loss to the world of art and music is immeasurable.
Choir! Choir! Choir! and the Art Gallery of Ontario are teaming up to honour his legacy this Saturday by inviting Toronto to help perform one of his most beloved songs in three-part harmony. What better place to pay tribute to one of the most indelible and influential artists of the past 50 years than the AGO, which hosted the groundbreaking exhibition David Bowie is in 2013.
So, we invite you to come, learn, and join more than 500 voices live in Walker Court to sing David Bowie’s classic song Space Oddity as arranged by Daveed Goldman & Nobu Adilman of Choir! Choir! Choir! You will be given a lyric sheet and we’ll learn the parts together. After we have it down, we’ll sing it through a number of times and film what will become a great video to share with friends, family and the world. This will be a beautiful and memorable night, so don’t miss it!
