Kiel Magis is a young man who impresses –  both with his wide vocal range and also his talent for connecting with other singers and musicians.

His last showcase concert at Good Shepherd Church was such a success with the public that the Stella Maris Concert Choir is presenting a follow-up – Kiel Magis and Friends, Sunday, May 15, 3 p.m. at the church, 2250 150 St.

A combination of both sacred and secular music highlighting the versatility of Magis, 21 – who has a particular affinity for the Josh Groban-style vocal repertoire – the concert will also feature piano accompanist/composer Trevor Hoffmann, and locally raised and educated singer/composer Anna Boots, 20, and the choir.

Boots’ composition Home will be performed by a quartet of voices, while Hoffmann will perform his piano piece Andromeda.

The Schola Cantorum girls choir will perform the Cesar Franck Panis Angelicus, as well as Mozart’s Laudate Dominum (with guest soloist Ursula Lee of the Stella Maris choir).

The concert is a fundraiser for a group of young adults who are attending World Youth Day events in Madrid this July (including Magis and Boots, both Douglas College music students transferring to UBC this fall).

Magis said he is glad to have another opportunity to showcase the music he loves at Good Shepherd Church.

“I was shocked at how many people came out to hear the concert last year,” Magis said.

“I feel very blessed and grateful to have been given an opportunity to do that for people – it went well, and I was very happy at the way it turned out.”

Admission is $10 at the door.
