Now in its 12th year, Good Noise has become Vancouver’s “go to” gospel choir, receiving many requests for special performances, both live and on television and radio. Good Noise has performed with artists such as Barbra Streisand, David Foster, Josh Groban, Holly Cole, Daniel Lapp, Dee Daniels, Jim Byrnes, John Lee Sanders, Jennifer Scott, Karin Plato, Kate Hammett-Vaughan, and has appeared on CBC TV, CBC Radio, Global TV, CityTV, Bravo, Knowledge Network and Vision TV. The choir has performed at several festivals, including the Vancouver Folk Festival, Envision Jazz Festival and the Wintersong Festival. In the Fall of 2013, Good Noise was featured live in concert in an episode for a new television series on Vision TV, “Gospel To Go”. The choir has also been featured in a television Christmas gospel music special “Tell It On The Mountain” on the Bravo Network, Vision Network and the Knowledge Network and featured in the Disney corporation’s promotion of the musical “The Lion King”. In addition to concert and festival engagements, the choir has also performed many benefit performances for charitable organizations including: BC Cancer Agency, Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, HIV/Aids care in Africa, Soles for Souls and the Christmas Wish Foundation.

Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir is known for its dynamic vocal sound, excellence in performance and a commitment to sharing the “good noise” that is gospel music. The choir’s mandate is to develop and promote an appreciation and understanding of gospel music in all its many styles and forms and introduce audiences to the unique and powerful aspects of this music.

Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir is an auditioned community choir, with no specific religious affiliation. The choir calls Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver, British Columbia “home” as a choir in residence. In addition to rehearsing and performing at the Cathedral, Good Noise enjoys collaborating with the Cathedral Choir in special performances and most recently co-commissioning a new choral work by Paul Halley, “The Dawning”, performing its world premiere in June 2011.

The choir, founded in 2004 as gospel choir in residence at Christ Church Cathedral, is directed by founding artistic director Gail Suderman. With her reputation as an outstanding voice teacher and conductor, Gail brings with her the ability to guide singers in finding their voices as well as her skill in directing a gospel choir that is known for vocal and musical integrity. Known in both the classical and contemporary music communities as an outstanding performer, conductor, accompanist and voice teacher, Gail brings many years of formal music studies as well as many years of performing experience to her role as leader of Good Noise.

In addition to being known for its vocal sound and music, Good Noise is also known for the outstanding musicians that accompany the choir. Gail directs the choir from the piano, and the choir is honoured to work with Mike Kalanj on Hammond B3, Laurence Mollerup on Bass Guitar and Double Bass, Elliot Polsky on Drums and Percussion and Ingrid Stitt on Alto and Soprano Saxophones.
