The Campbell River Singers, along with conductor John Montgomery and assistant conductor Shelley Roberts, are inviting the community to join them for their 39th annual Christmas Concert at the Campbell River Baptist Church (260 South Dogwood St.) Dec. 10.
The title piece, “Let There Be Christmas,” by Joseph M. Martin, is a wonderful composition using familiar carols, narration, and original anthems. From jubilant songs to reflective carols, it is a joyous celebration of hope and peace for the Christmas season.
As special guests and a special treat for this presentation, Montgomery will also be conducting an ensemble of talented North Island musicians that will provide the amazing orchestration to enhance the choral performance.
Piano accompaniment for all the concert pieces will be provided by Helen Moats and Lynn Montgomery.
The “Missa Festiva,” a Christmas cantata by John Leavitt, is also a part of the evening’s repertoire. Each of the five individual movements, based on Latin texts, is beautifully crafted with a strength and dignity reminiscent of centuries past.
Christmas songs and carols, ranging from traditional to modern, round out the evening, and will be sure to surround all with the warmth of the Season.
So save the date, call a friend, and bring the family for an evening of Christmas music and song with the Campbell River Singers.
Tickets are available at The Music Plant, from members of the choir, Odyssey Computers and at the door (cash only) and are $18 for adults, $15 for students and seniors. Children six and under are free.
