What’s in a name? Well, on Saturday, Dec. 2, the Just in Time Choirs will explore that question through song.
The theme for the JIT fall concert at the Comox Pentecostal Church is “The Name of the Game.” Each iconic song has been selected for its centring around the name of a person.
Songs will include John Denver’s sublime Annie’s Song, the Ray Charles classic Georgia on My Mind, Paul Simon’s hit You Can Call me Al to the Beatles’ unforgettable Hey Jude, and of course, ABBA’s The Name of the Game.
The set list also includes a fun mash-up of Paul Simon’s Cecilia and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover along with the Dolly Parton mega-hit, Jolene, to mention just a few. All three choirs come together to perform the finale and complete what will be a memorable night for all.
Just in Time comprises three ensembles: Unplugged (everyone welcome), the Jems (auditioned treble), and Vocal Minority (auditioned mixed). These locally renowned contemporary choirs perform under the direction of the enthusiastic choral conductor, Wendy Nixon Stothert. They will be joined by talented musical collaborators, Sean Mooney on piano, Britt Bowman on bass, Beau Stocker on drums, and Arlo Fleenor on guitar.
All three choirs are engaging, expressive, full of energy and the joy they project in their presentations is entertaining and infectious. The choirs will perform two shows at the Comox Pentecostal Church, 1919 Guthrie Road: a matinee performance at 1:30 and an evening performance at 6:30.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children 12 & under (including fees). There is also a live-stream option, as well as a limited number of community supported tickets at $15. Tickets and full details available online at www.justintimechoirs.ca/tickets
