1 DREAM 1 SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN IN ETHIOPIA

“Two hundred voices raised in song will make a joyful noise in Vancouver’s historic St. Andrew’s-Wesley Church and create a bright new future for thousands of children in Ethiopia.” Linda Ferguson of imagine1day. One night under the stars in Gheralta, Ethiopia, Vancouver school teacher Nancy Herb’s desire to make a difference for the children in rural Ethiopia came alive. It was then that the vision of 1 Dream 1 School was born – to raise $100,000 to build and fully outfit a school, in an area where education is largely inaccessible. In one night, the magnificent voices of two Vancouver gospel choirs combined with the beauty of dance, jubilant music and atmospheric lighting will create an unforgettable experience … and build one school through imagine1day, a charity dedicated to bringing quality sustainable education for all Ethiopians by 2030.

PERFORMANCE

Imagine darkness, then the tiny flame of a single candle. A solo voice soars through the shadows and gradually others join in. Majestic stained glass windows start to glow and come to life as the sanctuary is flooded with music and light. With its beautiful architecture and gorgeous acoustics, St. Andrew’s-Wesley is one of Vancouver’s most beloved churches.

This is the setting for a unique musical experience combining two of Canada’s finest gospel choirs, The Marcus Mosely Chorale and the Universal Gospel Choir. Special guest stars include Jim Byrnes and The Sojourners. All performers will be accompanied by the amazing Bill Sample and a five-piece band. The performances will be enhanced by spirited dance choreographed by Meagan Ekelund. Nancy Herb, a seasoned musical theatre performer and creator of this event, will be a featured soloist. The entire experience will be filmed in high definition with lighting designed by the renowned Phil Guhl, for a television special titled “A Joyful Noise”, produced by Shel Piercy of Infinity Filmed Entertainment Group Ltd. Tickets for 1 Dream 1 School – 7:30pm October 20, 2012 are $45 – $85 and are available at http://1dream1school.eventbrite.ca For information on 1 Dream 1 School see the website at www.1dream1school.org Media Contact: Maureen Verkaar mvallstar@telus.net 604-576-4885
