Busy Choristers seeking sellout

The Evergreen Choristers are going for their third full house in as many years for their annual variety show.

The Evergreen Choristers are going for their third full house in as many years for their annual variety show.

The Choristers, who will give the show Oct. 12 at the Filberg Centre, have been busy in the past couple of years.

They’ve entertained Lieut.-Gov. Steven Point at Government House in Victoria and have sung in the rotunda at the Legislature Building. They sing each month at assisted-living facilities in the Comox Valley.

This year’s show will feature a Western theme with standards such as Don’t Fence Me in, Rose of San Antone, Cool Water and Shenandoah. There will be numbers by popular soloists such as Harry Pruden, Rona Cronk and Glyn Jones.

Guests will include the ever-popular George Bentham and the Valley Echoes as well as Sharon Wennerberg participating in a tribute to her last husband George, to whom the show is dedicated.

Phil and Val Parmley will waltz up a storm and Marlene Oolo will wow the crowd with her tap dancing. There will be skits, recitals, instrumentals old-time fiddling (anyone for the Orange Blossom Special?) and perhaps a surprise or two.

Tickets cost $5 and are available at the Filberg Centre office in Courtenay. Partial proceeds will go to popular Comox Valley charity You Are Not Alone (YANA).
