Craig Bay Choristers to perform May 10

Annual spring concert in Craig Bay is a highlight for many

The Craig Bay Choristers’ annual spring concert has some special guests this year.

Kumbana Marimba will be entertaining with their infectious world music rhythms at a special evening of music at Knox United Church on Thursday, May 10 at 7 p.m.

Kumbana Marimba consists of nine members aged 18 to 22 who play traditional African songs on marimbas handmade in Errington. The group recently released a new CD.

During the concert called Let the Music Ring, the Choristers music will include the foot-stomping Appalachian rhythm of Sourwood Mountain and the African-style beat of Let’s Sing.

Tickets for the evening of delightful and varied entertainment are $10 and are available from chorus members and at Knox United Church in Parksville.

Past performances have sold out quickly but some tickets may be available at the door.
