Imagine soaring through the skies as you sway to the timeless melodies of “Come Fly with Me” recorded
by Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé, feeling the wind in your hair as you groove to Tina Turner’s iconic
Proud Mary; while rollin’ down the river, and contemplating a midnight train ride to Georgia with
soulful tunes that will tug at your heartstrings. From the bustling streets in Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” to the enchanting plains of the Serengeti with Toto’s Africa, each song in the repertoire will paint a vivid picture of diverse cultures and
landscapes, inviting you to dream, explore, and embrace the beauty of our world through the universal
language of music.

Moreover, brace yourself for a special treat as Bravado Show Choir collaborates with the “Technicolour
Choir” of Cardiff, Wales. Together they will perform a new arrangement by Technicolor Choir Director
Patrick Steed of “From Now On” from “The Greatest Showman”, including a sparkle of “Home” from
“The Wiz”, showcasing the blending of voices from different corners of the globe in a celebration of
musical unity and creativity.

“Our selection of songs for ‘Travelado’ reflects a diverse tapestry of musical genres and destinations,
capturing the essence of travel in every note. From the soaring melodies to soulful rhythms, each song is
a musical postcard that invites you to embark on a journey of discovery and imagination. With an
harmonious blend of classics and contemporary hits, we aim to transport our audience to different parts
of the world through song” says Director Ellen Wells.

This season, Ellen Wells, takes the helm as Bravado’s new Director, bringing a wealth of musical
expertise to the ensemble. She currently serves as a music educator at Pickering College in Newmarket,
where she leads choirs, and jazz bands, and directs musical theatre productions.

never before with Bravado Show Choir “Travelado: Planes, Trains, and Non-stop Refrains!” Let the
music guide you on a whirlwind tour of melodies and memories that will linger in your heart long after

What is Choral Fusion?

Not Your Grandma’s Choir

Bravado!’s choral-fusion style transitions fluently from Classical through Gospel, Jazz and Broadway to Rock without sacrificing musical excellence.

Bravado presents 2 self-produced concerts each year in May and December. We support our community by performing for charitable events and we can also be hired for private functions.

About Bravado

Pull back the curtains for a musical experience that leaves a lifetime impression.

Choir

We take pride in our tight harmonies and innovative vocal arrangements of a wide range of musical genres.

Band

Our events often include live bands. From guitar solos to violinists we bring variety to the stage.

THEATRE & COMEDY

We’re not just music, we provide a full theatrical and comedic experience at our events.

SPECIAL GUESTS & SOLOISTS

Bravado! concerts often include special guests drawn from the abundance of talent in our local community. Our past guests have included bell ringers, dancers, a jazz band, acrobats, and even Elvis! Whether it be a string quartet or a trapeze artist, our special guests always enrich our performances, and keep the audience on the edge of their seats!

Choreo

Bravado! is NOT a line of serious people singing from behind hymn sheets. We memorize our music so we can dance! Drawing on the skills of local choreographers, alongside our talented dance captain, we hope to bring you an exciting program, which is a feast for the eyes, and well as the ears!

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
OUR CORE VALUES

Bravado’s mission statement is: “Building Community Through Music.” In addition to going out into the community by holding the popular Voices at Large public rehearsals, Bravado always strives to hire singers, dancers, and musicians from the local community.

We encourage local young people to participate in performances both behind the scenes and onstage and are always looking for our next potential stage manger from within the neighborhood talent! Bravado! lends its support to charitable events and fundraisers, and organizes a charitable give away at each show, to provide support for a local cause in need.
