Let your heart feel light this holiday season.
The Victoria Symphony is returning to Qualicum Beach with its Christmas Pops concert called Sentimental Christmas December 16 featuring beloved conductor Brian Jackson and singers from the Canadian College of Performing Arts, one of the country’s top training centres for talented and passionate artists.
“This will be an absolute winner,” said Eric Charman, who has been helping to promote the Symphony’s shows for decades.
Tickets for this outstanding concert are going fast, Charman said, so people should secure theirs from Mulberry Bush Bookstores as soon as possible.
The program aims to get people in the Christmas spirit and fill them with warmth and nostalgia, as they enjoy music from favourite Hollywood and Broadway musicals.
Maestro Jackson has half a century of conducting experience, having led all major orchestras in Canada and in the United Kingdom, the United States, and South America.
The popular conductor has decided to step back from his positions as Principal Pops Conductor of the orchestras in London, Victoria and Kitchener-Waterloo in order to concentrate on chamber music, writing and arranging, mentoring and more time with his family. However he will be returning to conduct orchestras in a number of places around Canada this season, including Qualicum Beach.
Tickets are $35 for from Mulberry Bush Book Stores located in Qualicum Beach and Parksville, using cash or cheques only. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.
