Singing for the CBC’s Food Bank Day is a Chor Leoni tradition! Every year we get up well before any chorister should have to even think, stumble out the door and try to warm up before singing on the Early Edition. For all of the good natured grousing that (perhaps) happens beforehand, the lions actually love this particular community service because the cuase is so great.
We’ll be there at 5:30am and any early risers are welcome to be part of the live audience at CBC – or tune in to CBC Radio One. (AM 690 or FM 88.1)
Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of CBC Vancouver’s Open House and Food Bank Day! Tour the state of the art integrated newsroom, meet CBC TV and radio hosts including Tony Parsons, Gloria Macarenko, George Stroumboulopoulos and Rick Cluff, and be a part of our full-day of live broadcasts. Special musical guests throughout the day include Randy Bachman, Hannah Georgas, Jill Barber, 54/40 and of course, Chor Leoni. It will be a day of heartfelt generosity as we help to raise funds for the food banks of BC. Live broadcasts start at 5:30 am with The Early Edition and tours begin at 8 am until 7 pm. We hope to see you there!
