Rachel Fuller will join the Campbell River Children’s Choir for a night of seasonal music on Dec. 10-11.

Choir serves up sounds of the season

The music will encompass many different styles from the 16th Century to the present

The Campbell River Children’s Choir and special guest artist, saxophonist Rachel Fuller,  invite the public to Give Us Hope – a seasonal celebration to be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday Dec. 11  at 3 p.m.

The music will encompass many different styles from the 16th Century to the present and include some traditional carols with a Cuban twist, some familiar Jazz Standards and a uniquely Canadian version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

The choir is pleased to have saxophonist Rachel Fuller sharing her talents at this special event.

Fuller is newly arrived from England where she was Principal Sax of the Southampton University Jazz Orchestra, Principal Sax of the Southampton City Pops Orchestra and Principal Clarinet of the University Sinfonietta Orchestra. She graduated with a First Class Honours Degree and soon began touring with an international showband taking her around North America, the South Pacific, the Far East, Middle East and much of Europe.

Fuller is presently performing in several local groups as well as teaching privately. Fuller will play several selections with the choir and treat the audience  to a solo  where she will  join forces with local bassist Grahame Edwards.

The choir is in the midst of an exciting year which will see 30 of its members travel to New York City to perform in a choral festival at  Carnegie Hall.

Singing  on the stage of Carnegie Hall, where some of the greatest artists in musical history have performed,  is an amazing opportunity that the singers earned by way of their auditioned recording.

“I always tell the singers to give their all at our recording sessions,” says music director Barbara Prowse, “as it is these recordings that open doors for us, both in gaining acceptance to festivals and to bringing in artisits and composers to work with us.

“The singers work very hard and it is great to see their efforts rewarded.”

Tickets for Give Us Hope are available at the Music Plant, cash only.
