Choir director Karla Mundy has selected beautiful and powerful melodies and vocal arrangements, with a variety of styles, tempos, grooves and traditions, all surrounding the theme, joy.

The Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers will be at the event selling homemade and artisan crafts in the theatre’s lobby. Tickets are $22.50 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. Get them at www.porttheatre.com or by calling 250-754-8550. For more on the Soul Choir, visit islandsoulchoir.com.
