Chor Leoni presents Cadillac Cathedral

Location: British Columbia, Canada
Here’s a recipe for a rollicking good show. Take renowned Canadian author Jack Hodgins, put him on stage reading a story he’s written especially for this occasion, back him up with the men of Chor Leoni, together with fiddler Cam Wilson and his band, mix well with some favourites from the choir’s repertoire, plus new tunes written by Cam and, voilà, Cadillac Cathedral, a deliciously funny and moving tale about an old hearse rescued from oblivion and an old man given new life along the backroads of Vancouver Island. Only one performance each in Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo. Don’t miss it!
