The Island Voices will be bolstered by the voices and sounds of Wirechoir in their upcoming Christmas concert this Friday at the Maritime Heritage Centre.

Yuletide by the fireside

Island Voices Chamber Choir is thrilled to announce that they will be joined by the Wirechoir at their upcoming performances.

Island Voices Chamber Choir is thrilled to announce that they will be joined by the Wirechoir at their upcoming performances of “Yuletide by the Fireside”.

Wirechoir includes Grant McLellan on guitar, Grahame Edwards on bass, trumpet and percussion, and Dave Blinzinger Jr. on flute, saxophone and keyboard. This ensemble is well established in the area, and enjoys a solid reputation.

The trio will play a short set, this Friday at 8 p.m. at the Maritime Heritage Centre. Punch and snacks are included in the ticket price, so plan on sticking around!

In Comox (Sun., Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m.) a slightly different ensemble of McLellan and Edwards with Blaine Dunaway on Jazz violin will make that concert an extra treat. They will entertain before the concert as well as during, so come early.  Dunaway has an impressive background in a wide array of musical genres including jazz, classical and big band.

But that’s not all! One more local musician, local flautist Tomoko Bonner, will be accompanying the choir on “What Child is This?” Bonner is new to Campbell River and is a music therapist and teacher. Plus the choir’s own Helen Moats will once again accompany a few numbers on the piano and the multi-talented Joyce Baker will join in “Pat-a-Pan” with a recorder.

For all the details visit IslandVoices ChamberChoir.bc.ca or call Jan at (250) 338-1439 or Anne at (250) 287-4236.
