Dawn Pemberton (Director)
Vibrant, genuine and soulful, Dawn has deep musical roots that take her powerful voice from gospel and soul to jazz, funk and world music. She has become a staple of the Vancouver music scene and can often be found tearin’ it up as a vocalist, teacher, facilitator, adjudicator, choir director and “go to girl” for live performances and studio sessions. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of  the Roots ‘N’ Wings Women’s Choir and also teaches masterclasses and workshops all over Canada. A passionate educator and performer, Dawn approaches music with a sense of adventure, quirkiness, and serious groove and shapes it into her own unique and dynamic package.  Tight, expressive and bold, Dawn will hit you where it counts, funk you up and make you say “Go ‘head!”
