Voices of Christmas choral show

Disappointed choral voice lovers will be pleased to note the Parksville and District Community Choir’s Voices of Christmas show, cancelled due to the recent weather, has been rescheduled for Dec. 17, 7:30 p.m. at Knox United Church.

Choir manager Rosemarie Davenport said the group has existed since 1969 and “this is the only one in all that time that’s ever had to be cancelled.”

She noted any tickets purchased for the cancelled concert will be honoured at the door.

Of special local interest this year is a performance of Christmas Lullaby, a work composed by Graeme Wearmouth who studied music composition at UBC. Wearmouth’s mother Marjorie, a long time member of the choir, will be one of the soloists singing her son’s work.

“We’re presenting a nice Christmas variety,” said Davenport.

Also on the program is Camille-Saint-Saen’s Christmas Oratorio written in 1858 and sung in English.

Another intriguing selection on the menu is a carol entitled Blessed Be That Maid Marie featuring tambourine, finger cymbals and drum.

All in all the night promise to be an evening of more unusual carols sung by a choir that’s become a music fixture in Oceanside.

Tickets available at the door are $12 each, $10 for seniors and students.
