Wonder Concert in Victoria

Music is a world within itself and is a language we all
understand.  It gives soul to the
universe, wings to the wind, light to the imagination and life to
everything.  It makes us think, feel,
dream and wonder.

The Victoria Freedom Gospel Choir invites you to explore the
world around you with songs of “Wonder” at their end of season
family-friendly concert.

Directed by Ann Antonides and accompanied by Tanya
Gillespie, the performances will feature songs composed specifically for the
choir as well as some traditional well-known gospel pieces.  Cara McCandless will accompany on Bass Guitar
and Sheri Clayton on the Drums.

So don’t miss out and join us on Saturday 11th May at
7pm at the First Church of the Nazarene (4277 Quadra Street in Victoria).

Tickets are only $20.00 each and children under 12 are free
when accompanied by an adult!  Tickets
can be purchased from Choir members, at the door on concert days, at The First
Church of the Nazarene Office or from the Christian Music and Book Store
located at 3090 Nanaimo Street in Victoria.

Our Director

Musical Director Ann Antonides has a history of more than 30 years of choral conducting on Southern Vancouver Island, including a dozen years at the helm of the Duncan Choral Society, as well as conducting elementary and high school choirs during her teaching career.

In September of 2013 Ann started the Freedom. Gospel Choir. Ann has always loved gospel music and sometimes you can catch her dancing to the tunes. Ann loves bringing together singers who are enriched by this music and want to share their joy with the community.

Tanya Gillespie


Yes, she plays guitar. And drums. And other instruments. But her real forté is the piano. She loves the gospel genre, and it shows in the way she plays. After graduating with first class honours in piano and harmony at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Tanya continued to expand her musical horizons by developing her preordained passion for singing, writing, and composing.

In 2006, she won the Monday Magazine designation as “Who Will Be Victoria’s Next Big Thing”, and took the runner-up prize in the category of Favorite Solo Artist.

She has produced 3 CD’s including a restful assortment of improvisational piano instrumentals entitled “Impromptu”, and an infectious Indie-pop collection produced by Juno-nominated musician/producer Matthew James.
