The Christmas Massed Choir is gearing up to present a winter cantata for the community on Dec. 20.

Choir to present winter cantata

‘Tis the season.

Come listen to the choral music of the Christmas Massed Choir performing “The Winter Rose” cantata, a beautiful and inspiring piece written by Joseph Martin.

The cantata will be sung by a 45 member choir that draws from local Church Choirs and Campbell River Singers, conducted by John Montgomery and accompanied by pianist Dianne Mason.

Montgomery is the regular music director of both the Campbell River Singers and the Campbell River United Church choir.

The last Massed Choir performance in Campbell River was held in December, 2013 and was highly successful, with both performances presented to standing room only audiences.

Once again, there will be two performances on Sunday, Dec. 20 at the Campbell River United Church, 415 Pinecrest Road with a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is by cash donation at the door, with all proceeds going to the Campbell River Food Bank.

Come out and listen to the beautiful sounds of the season and support a local charity.
