Singers herald Christmas

A River City tradition since 1979, this year features the 72-voice choir accompanied by a seven piece orchestra

The Campbell River Singers with Conductor John Montgomery, invite you to join them at the Tidemark Theatre Dec. 10 for their annual Christmas Concert.

A River City tradition since 1979, this year features the 72-voice choir accompanied by a seven piece orchestra performing Vivaldi’s Gloria.

The Gloria is a joyous musical celebration with distinctive melodies and rhythms that give it universal appeal. It is a perfect choral piece to herald the Christmas Season.

The orchestra Montgomery has assembled to accompany the choir is made up of talented local musicians who bring Vivaldi’s music to life.

The second half of the program will see the choir offering a variety of Christmas anthems and spirituals. One particularly beautiful melody is based on Sibelius’ Finlandia, another on the theme from Beethoven’s Sonata Pathetique.

Familiar carols are woven into new songs as the choir presents all new numbers for your listening enjoyment.

The performance will be on Saturday Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tidemark Theatre. Tickets available at the Tidemark. Adults – $18; seniors and students – $15

So mark your calendars, bring family and friends, and enjoy a great evening of choral and orchestral music.
