Celebration singers peform for two nights

The choir will perform Dec. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

The Celebration Singers are scheduling their usually sold-out Christmas concert this year over two nights. The choir will perform Dec. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

St. George’s United Church, on Fitzgerald Avenue, will be the setting for these two nights of Christmas music under the direction of Jenn Forsland. With Sean Mooney on the piano, your evening will be filled with the delightful sounds of traditional carols, seasonal songs with a twist, and more.

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town, and Winter Wonderland are familiar holiday tunes that the choir enjoys singing. A small ensemble will give them a jazzy flavour.

Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy is a classical melody that will truly entertain the audience. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day has Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poetic words put to music.

Be prepared to add your voices to the choir and fill St. George’s with the Christmas spirit as you are invited to sing along with some favourite carols. Lyrics will be provided.

Retired teacher and choir director from Vancouver, Denise Marquette, is conducting two numbers, giving Forsland an opportunity to add her sumptuous voice to the choir. As well, a couple of selections will have some added percussion accompaniment. The evening will end with the choir hosting the audience for tea and treats after the show.

Tickets for either concert are available at House of Colour in Courtenay, Blue Heron Books in Comox, or from any choir member.
