Celebration Singers salute city’s centennial

Concert at the Sid Williams Theatre on Sunday June 7 at 7:30 p.m.

The Celebration Singers will salute the City of Courtenay with their spring concert at the Sid Williams Theatre on Sunday June 7 at 7:30 p.m.

In honour of the City’s 100th year, the choir will add this exciting show to June’s homecoming events.

Don’t miss this chance to wish Courtenay a musical ‘happy birthday’.

With 70-plus voices, the Celebration Singers has expanded and refined its sound, and has achieved a growing reputation as a delightfully entertaining “must see” act.

Guest performers, the GP Vanier Harmonic Minors, will bring their youthful talent, passion for music and their best wishes to the stage as well.

Jenn Forsland directs the Celebration Singers and the Harmonic Minors and is one of the Valley’s most talented and sought after musical directors and teachers. She has once again conjured up a dynamic program of diverse music.

For fans of Canadiana, there will be arrangements by Brian Tate, Bruce Coburn, Amy Stephen and Stan Rogers. Beatles fans and gospel music lovers will also hear some familiar tunes.

Pianist Sean Mooney will accompany the choirs with his usual grace and magic.

Whether you are a valued long-time Celebration Singers fan, another talented Comox Valley musician or a novice to it all, you will be glad you joined the celebration. Tickets are $15 (adult) and $10 (child -12) and are available at the Sid Williams box office or on line at www.thesidwilliamstheatre.com
