Tidesmen, Military Wives to share stage at the Sid on Sunday

The Tidesmen, based on Vancouver Island, have been entertaining audiences since 1973 with first class “barbershop” harmony.

The Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise presents an afternoon with The Tidesmen Chorus and The Canadian Military Wives Choir Comox, on Mother’s Day, May 8, at The Sid Williams Theatre at 2 p.m.

The Tidesmen, based on Vancouver Island, have been entertaining audiences since 1973 with first class “barbershop” harmony.

They are currently on the road to bigger and better sounds, with a chorus approaching 70 members.

The Tidesmen strive for excellence in singing and entertainment. Their positive influence is shared with our community through song and service.

They take pride in serving the community and for many years have dedicated a portion of our revenues to supporting the Nanaimo Child Development Centre, and have also performed annually on the CDC’s fundraising telethon.

The Tidesman also stay active in community through music bursaries to one or more deserving music students to help fund their further education and perform at low or no charge for worthy causes, including retirement homes and charity benefits.

The Canadian Military Wives Choir of Comox is an all-female choir, which aims to support military women through vocal music and camaraderie.

Members are closely associated with the military, either by marriage or by occupation, and there is strong emphasis on friendship and fun.

The choir is an independent organization which covers its expenses through membership dues and donations from the local community.

Join us, Sunday at the Sid Williams Theatre for a wonderful afternoon of harmonious fellowship and music.
