Vancouver Island's premier men's chorus to perform Saturday at Parksville Community Centre

The Tidesmen, the premier men’s chorus on Vancouver Island, will present its Christmas with the Tidesmen concert Saturday, Dec. 12, at the Parksville Community Centre.

The chorus, which boasts 70 members, typically has 50 or more on stage for its performances. The Tidesmen are based in Nanaimo, but draw members from Courtenay to Victoria, including several from Parksville and Qualicum.

The evening will include an appearance by special guests The Big Mess, a rousing vocal/trumpet duo also from Nanaimo.

Showtime is 6 p.m. in the Galaxy Theatre at PCC. Tickets are $15 for adults — accompanied children are free — and can be purchased in advance at Mulberry Books in Parksville and Qualicum Beach, from any chorus member, or online by visiting www.tidesmen.com.
