Rollicking good time

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without attending a Sage Valley Voices concert.  People of all ages turn out each year to hear some spirit-lifting music, raise their voices in some sing along numbers and then visit afterwards.   A ‘cuppa tea’ and delicious Christmas baking shared with choir members in Victorian garb put closure to another annual Christmas tradition.

This year the choir will be performing at the Oliver United Church at 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 5th, and again on Sunday afternoon, December 6th, at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets for the events are available at the door for $10.00 and proceeds, after expenses, go to support the winter Soup Kitchen at the church.

Music from around the world creates some beautiful moments. “Celtic Noel”, “A Japanese Christmas”, the “Ukranian Bell Carol”, “Christmas in Killarney” and an “African Celebration” link us to traditions in other countries.  Other numbers bring back memories from our own culture.   “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “Ave Maria” are but two of these with a rollicking “Partridge in a Pear Tree” always a favourite.

Lori Martine is the choir conductor and Sandy Andres provides piano accompaniment.   Other instrumentalists share their talents too.   Do come, sit back and enjoy.   It’s Christmas time!
