Vancouver Cantata Singers + ICORD = Spinal Chord 2011

The Vancouver Cantata Singers and ICORD (International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries, i.e., related to spinal cord problems) held their 3rd annual Spinal Chord (yes, with an "h") Nov. 5th, 2011 and it was a great success--excellent attendance, our best silent auction ever, an exciting live auction with big ticket items, excellent acoustics for my favourite choir, superb organization at every level, and everybody had a great time.  It is interesting seeing this atrium be transformed into a concert venue, and you can watch the choir and/or see the well-lit research labs and offices on the upper levels.  Visually, this illustrates the happy confluence of science and the musical arts.


Next year, Nov. 3rd, 2012.  Hope to see some of you there!
