Starlight presents We Are Family

Victoria’s Starlight Pops Choir is returning on June 14 with an upbeat concert that celebrates the choir’s fifth anniversary

Victoria’s Starlight Pops Choir is returning on June 14 with an upbeat concert that celebrates the choir’s fifth anniversary and its second engagement in Campbell River.

The concert features classic hits from the Mamas and Papas, ABBA, the Rankin Family, Carole King, Ben E. King, and much, much more.

“It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up our fifth season already,” says Sue Doman, the choir’s founder and director. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response and support from the community. The music in this concert comes from our hearts.

“It honours the love and friendship that has developed among choir members over the past five years, and the mutual respect and admiration that has grown between the choir and our audiences,” Doman adds.  “‘We are Family!’ celebrates our family and yours.”

Formed in 2008 with 40 singers, the choir quickly grew to more than 80, and currently has a waiting list of eager people.

The choir is backed up by a four-piece combo of professional musicians. Rounding out the event are performances by soloists and small ensembles, and a special presentation by Doman, an accomplished vocalist herself.

Starlight Pops performs Friday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Campbell River United Church, 415 Pinecrest Road. Tickets cost $18 and can be purchased at the door, in cash, or online at www.starlightpopschoir.com
