The largest choir experience in Nelson’s history filled the NDCC Arena as Capitol Theatre has teamed up with director Allison Girvan to produce FIREWORKS Saturday afternoon.

Approximately 300 members of the Nelson singing community joined members of the Corazón Vocal Ensemble as well as visiting singers from the Western University’s Community Through Choral Art program to sign a medley of songs in front of the public.

Members of the choir, who received sound links prior to the performance, practiced on their own or in small groups before joining together for rehearsal a few hours before Saturday’s performance.

The performance, with five pieces of music included Coldplay’s “Fix You” and Bon Iver’s “Flume” lasted approximately 30 minutes.
