Celebrate joy of learning music at Motif’s Christmas recital

Celebrate the joy of lifelong music learning at Motif Music Studios’ ninth annual Christmas recital.

Performers of all ages will bring a little sparkle to your holiday season on Dec. 21 at Courtenay Fellowship Baptist Church. Join us by donation to Compassion Canada (www.compassion.ca) and the Kus-Kus-Sum Project (www.kuskussum.ca.)

Students will perform pieces on piano, voice, cello, and violin – individually and in small groups. Our showcases will feature a variety of instruments at each recital time (come for one or stay for all!).

Enjoy Motif Minis from 3:30 to 4 p.m. (our tiniest performers ages 8 and under). Following are two recital times for all ages, instruments, and levels at 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. and 6:15 to 7:30 p.m.

Recitals also feature faculty performances: Ashley Sykes local singer/songwriter, Sophie Simard soprano, and an instrumental voice, cello and piano performance by Ashley Sykes, Jordie Robinson and Julianne Duplissie.

Faculty members are proud to support their student’s growth to the stage, and are thrilled to meet community members at recitals.

“I love meeting our community and showcasing the end result of weeks of hard work in the lesson studio,” said veteran teacher Nathania.

To top off this festive occasion, Isla Life Designs (www.islalifedesigns.com) will be on site completing a live painting culminating in a silent auction piece with proceeds to YANA.

On one of the darkest night of the winter, this holiday arts bouquet is sure to keep your family warm and inspired. For more information contact Jeff or Amie Webster at motifmusicstudios@gmail.com.
