60 voices will be presenting two performances of Night of the Father’s Love – a Christmas Musical Celebration

Celebrate the Spirit of Christmas and experience the Awe and Mystery of the Christmas Story.

The Campbell River United Church is the place to be on Sunday Dec. 23 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. where a massed choir of approximately 60 voices will be presenting two performances of Night of the Father’s Love – a Christmas Musical Celebration for Choir and Narration by composer Pepper Choplin.

The choir has been faithfully practicing since early October and are eager to share this wonderful cantata with the community of Campbell River.

The ensemble is comprised of the combined choirs from the Campbell River United Church, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Saint Peter’s Anglican Church, people from the community of C.R. and one dedicated singer who hast traveled from Nanaimo every week to participate.

Conducting this choral event is C.R. United Church Music Director Cindy Taylor, with the musical talents of Nicole Taylor on the piano.

The choral presentation will begin with the choir and audience participating in singing traditional Christmas Carols after which the audience will experience the Christmas Nativity Story with three narrators, solos and the massed choir.

This wonderful cantata includes many familiar Carol’s like O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Of the Father’s Son Begotten, Silent Night, We Three Kings, Fall On Your Knees (from O Holy Night), and Hark the Herald Angels Sing intertwined with beautiful original music by Pepper Choplin. The choir favorite, Angel’s Are Making Their Rounds, treats the listener to four totally different songs interwoven together in a “fugue like” style with excitement and joy.

This is truly a volunteer event in the Spirit of Christmas.

The C.R. United Church is graciously sponsoring this celebration by donating their building for all of the rehearsals and performances, and those involved giving of their time and talents with all of the proceeds from both Choral presentations going to the Campbell River Food Bank.

Tickets for each performance are $5 per person and are available at the Music Plant at 619, 11th Avenue.

Tickets are already selling fast so get your tickets early for this exciting event.
