Campbell River Singers present Hope! A Christmas Cantata

Hope! A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen has always lifted the human heart.

The Campbell River Singers and conductor John Montgomery invite you to a joyous Christmas Celebration on Saturday Dec. 16, 7:30 p.m., at the Campbell River Baptist Church.

The evening begins with a ‘taste’ of Vivaldi’s Gloria. If you like Messiah, you will like this. It is the most famous of all Vivaldi’s sacred works, and is fun, optimistic and energetic. Performing six movements, the choir will be accompanied by a ten piece ensemble orchestra.

Crown Him Lord of All has a Celtic feel and features an Irish fiddle accompaniment. A jazzed up arrangement of We Three Kings in 5/4 time is reminiscent of Dave Brubeck’s Take Five iconic instrumental piece.

And no Campbell River Singers’ concert would be complete without a couple of fun, lively Christmas spirituals led by assistant conductor Shelley Roberts. Lynn Montgomery will be our hard working piano accompanist throughout the evening.

For the finale, the Singers, John, and all the musicians, are excited to perform the new Christmas gospel celebration “Hope!” by Joel Raney.

It has all original contemporary music, infused with familiar carols, gospel, soul and blues. Accompanied by a fourteen piece ensemble orchestra, it is guaranteed to please.

They welcome everyone to attend their 40th Annual Christmas Concert, so save the date. Call a friend and bring the family for a wonderful evening of music and song to mark the Christmas Season.

Tickets available at The Music Plant and At the Door. All tickets are $20. Ages six and under are free.
