Just in Time has plenty of Soul

upcoming concert ‘Soul’ on Saturday, Nov. 28

Music lovers will want to mark their calenders for the Comox Valley’s popular  Just in Time choirs’  upcoming concert ‘Soul’ on Saturday, Nov. 28.

‘People get Ready’ as they present songs by Curtis Mayfield, Sam Cooke, Aretha, Wilson Pickett, Sly and The Family Stone, Paul Simon and even Johnny Cash along with some jazz standards like Body and Soul, some gospel and more.

Tickets are $16 (children five and under free) and there are two shows to choose from: a 2 p.m. matinée and a 7 p.m. evening performance at the Pentecostal Church at 1919 Guthrie Rd. in Comox.

The Just in Time choirs were launched in September 2005 and are made up of adult singers in three choirs. The accomplished Jems female choir and Vocal Minority mixed choir are auditioned choirs consisting of 14 members each. Unplugged is a mixed, non-auditioned group of 50 energetic and passionate singers. The choirs offer a safe, warm, encouraging, uplifting environment where singers of all experience levels are welcome and sharing this with their audience.

Just in Time singers explore a wide range of styles with a contemporary repertoire. Concerts have included iconic rock songs, swing, Latin, gospel and blues. This year’s themed ‘Soul’ music concert adds a new twist. Just in Time choirs’ community spreads positive vibes and joy through singing under the direction of choir director, Wendy Nixon Stothert, with pianist Sean Mooney. The ‘Soul’ concert rhythm section is filled out with drums, Oscar Robles, bass, Britt Bowman, and guitar, Jeff Drummond.

You won’t want to miss this season’s ‘Just in Time’ Soul concert Nov. 28.

Tickets are available at Benjamin Moore House of Colour on Fifth Street in Courtenay, and Red Carpet Antiques, Gone Hollywood Video and Blue Heron Books in Comox.
