The Campbell River Children’s Choir performs its spring concert this Saturday.

Children’s Choir to sing in nation’s capital

The Campbell River Children’s Choir Spring Concert will take place at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church this Saturday

The Campbell River Children’s Choir Spring Concert will take place at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

The program will include music from Handel to “Happy.”

Canadian compositions are also on the program as members of the “touring choir” will be traveling to the nations’s capital to sing at the National Arts Centre on Canada Day.

The choir will be sharing the stage with choral groups from across Canada as well singing on their own in the rotunda of the Parliament Buildings and other venues.

It should be an unforgettable experience for this talented group of young singers.

The choir has traveled outside of Canada for many festivals and are honoured to have the opportunity to be part of our country’s national birthday party.

The choir is especially excited about meeting the Inuksuk Drum Dancer’s Choir from Nunavut as well as singers from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and the maritimes and, of course, seeing the fireworks on Parliament Hill.

They are working hard so that Campbell River will be proud of them.

The choir is grateful to be part of a community that is so supportive of its youth and gives encouragement and recognition to the hard work, talent and skill of these young singers.

Tickets for the concert are available at the Music Plant, $15 admission, $12 for seniors.

The choir holds auditions for singers each May.

Anyone who is interested can call Barbara at 250-337-8638 for more information.
