The event, which is called  Indiekör, features singers between the ages of 15-23 covering songs from a wide range of bands including the Rolling Stones and Hey Ocean.

“We do covers of our favourite indie-rock bands,” said CSYC conductor Carrie Tennant.

This is the second year in a row that CSYC has performed in Nanaimo, and Tennant said  the trip over from Coquitlam is a good bonding experience for the kids.

“We are all bringing sleeping bags and crashing on the floor of St. Andrew’s after this,” Tennant said. “It’s a good bonding experience.”
