One last direction for Volk

This will be Kelly Volk’s final concert as Choristers’ director

The Craig Bay Choristers’ upcoming concert is particularly special for the group as it marks the farewell appearance of their long-time and much loved director, Kelly Volk.

One Song, Many Voices will be held at Knox United Church on Thursday, May 9 at 7 p.m.

The program is filled with beautiful songs as well as the foot stompin’, hand-clapping number (All God‚‘s Creatures Got) A Place in the Choir.

Prior to that concert the Choristers are joining The Village Voices of Qualicum, A Capella Plus, and Brentwood College Concert Choir at The Port Theatre in Nanaimo as part of the Voices of the Island concert.

This performance will be held on Sunday, May 5 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Port Theatre and through choir members.

For One Song, Many Voices, tickets are $10 and are available at Knox United Church office and through Chorister members.

Special guest artist Karen Withers Janssen will once more delight the audience accompanying the choir on flute.

Other musicians to grace the stage are Wally Chinn on percussion, George Furniss on guitar and the wonderful pianist, Carl McLuhan.

After the concert, Volk is taking a break from the weekly grind of rehearsals and behind-the-scenes planning of repertoire to enjoy travelling around the country and spending those long winter months in sunnier climes with his wife, Gitte.

This will be Volk’s final concert but the Choristers will continue singing and performing and delighting audiences under the baton of Alan Whitmore, Music Director of Knox United Church.
