On January 10, 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!

Saturday, January 16, 6:30 pm – 8:15 pm
(Doors open at 6:00 pm; lineup begins outside the AGO entrance)
Walker Court at the AGO
Members $10 | Public $12 | Standing room only
Tickets are limited and available online only starting January 13 at 12 pm

Ticketholders will occupy the floor and balcony surrounding Walker Court. Note that the floor area has limited capacity. Visitors will be given access on a first-come, first-served basis, with no in and out privileges during the event.

Proceeds will support AGO’s Education and Youth Art Programs

Daveed and Nobu (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a weekly drop in, no-commitment singing event in February 2011. Now happening twice weekly, and open to anyone who likes to sing new arrangements of pop songs, C!C!C! boasts a dedicated and passionate membership of inspired singers from in and around Toronto, Canada. They have performed live with Patti Smith at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Tegan and Sara on the Juno Awards, and most recently at Massey Hall opening for Jay Leno. They are currently helping to sponsor a Syrian refugee family to settle in the GTA. (choirchoirchoir.com)
