Celebration singers offer Christmas Lullaby

At St. George’s United Church in Courtenay on Thursday Dec. 18 and Friday Dec. 19

Celebration Singers

The Celebration Singers will perform their beautiful winter concert “Christmas Lullaby” at St. George’s United Church in Courtenay on Thursday Dec. 18 and Friday Dec. 19 at 7:30 p.m.

The choir of 87 voices is preparing to entertain you with a diverse repertoire of poignant and joyful music from around the world and here at home.

Last June the choir celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Sid Williams Theatre to a sold-out audience. It was an extraordinary night! The choir greatly appreciates the community’s enduring and enthusiastic support.

The Celebration Singers perform under the expert direction of Jenn Forsland and are accompanied by the magic of Sean Mooney on piano. Anela Kahiamoi and Jonathan Fairbank add talented instrumental back up for this concert.

“Christmas Lullaby” includes Italian, Latin and Polish Christmas carols, great gospel sounds and music from two of Canada’s most famous folk artists, Gordon Lightfoot and Ian Tamblyn. Arrangements by John Rutter, Brian Tate and Joel Raney will also be featured. Prepare to be moved, entertained and above all to celebrate.

Tickets available at The Blue Heron Bookstore in Comox, Benjamin Moore: House of Color in Courtenay and from choir members. Prices: $12 (adults) and $5 (children 12 and under).
