Internationally acclaimed tenor Ken Lavigne will bring back the flavour of a 1940s-era live radio program when he presents the Ken Lavigne Christmas Old Time Radio Roadshow Dec. 12 at Knox United Church in Parksville.
A founding member of the Canadian Tenors (now known as The Tenors), Lavigne has performed throughout the world, including New York’s Carnegie Hall and a scheduled 2016 debut at Sydney Opera House in Australia.
Saturday’s event will feature Lavigne and his band performing holiday favourites, stories and dramas. Special guests, the Company B Vocal Trio, add a feminine touch that echoes the heyday of the Andrews Sisters.
A fundraising event for Knox United, the show begins at 3 p.m. Tickets are $32 for adults, $18 for students, and are available in advance at Knox United Church and at Mulberry Bush Bookstores in both Parksville and Qualicum Beach.
Knox United Church is located at 345 Pym Street in Parksville. For more info, call 250-248-3927 or visit www.kenlavigne.com.
