Island Voices Chamber Choir

Island Voices to sing in Comox

Comox United Church at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 30

Island Voices Chamber Choir and conductor Jenn Forsland present “Songs of Heaven and Earth”.

The concert will take place at Comox United Church at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 30.

Island Voices is primarily an a cappella choir, however this concert will also feature Joyce Baker on cello and Janet Bouey on clarinet, as well as the piano accompaniment of Joyce Baker, Helen Moats and Jenn Forsland.

As usual, Island Voices will perform works of a wide variety of genres including classical, pop, jazz, spirituals, folk song and liturgical. Although much of the program includes works that are not necessarily drawn from the Christmas or holiday genre, the audience will be treated to a whimsical version of Tchaikovsky’s “Sugar Plum Fairy” and the uplifting Nigerian Christmas song “Betelehemu”. Other works include lyrics by some of the world’s greatest writers spanning over centuries, including John Donne and R. M. Rilke.  Britain’s Christina Rossetti penned the words to “Earth Grown Old”. The music for this haunting piece was composed by Graeme Langager, a talented, and local B.C. choral director. The choir is excited to perform this work, as they were able to gain direct insight from the composer himself this last September at the choir’s annual retreat.

The Comox concert is $15 and $12 for seniors. Comox United is located at 250 Beach Street.

For more info call 250-338-1439. Tickets are available at The Laughing Oyster and Blue Heron Book stores.
