A Down Home Christmas to get you in the spirit! The Sage Valley Voices are known locally for their lively programmes, zany humour, colourful costumes, and … surprises! Their sense of fun and love of singing comes across in every performance. A true “community choir” that knows what its audience likes, and delivers.
You can also “sample” the choir in performance at Oliver’s downtown LightUp celebration on the evening of Friday December 2 and at the Community Christmas Concert on December 4 at 2:30 p.m. on the Oliver Alliance Church stage. But you’ll want to get the full show “Down Home” on December 10 & 11 at Oliver United Church (see poster for details).
The choir is hunting for a new director to carry on the tradition. Are you interested? Find out more by contacting the arts council and we’ll pass your inquiry along olivercac @ gmail.com Don’t let “A Down Home Christmas” be their last concert! These folks are just having way to much fun to stop!
The Oliver Community Arts Council is reviving this tradition and presenting a programme full of local entertainment. Fun for the whole family! The concert is set for Sunday December 4 at 2:30 p.m. using the venue at the Oliver Alliance Church. Admission is FREE but donations to the arts council and Oliver Food Bank are welcome.
The programme has something for everyone: the Swingin’ Bronze Handbell Ringers, Lori Martine with a flute instrumental, Bill Phillips with a recitation, the Desert Bronze Handbell Ringers, Bob Park with a guitar instrumental, the Oliver Handbell Ringers, a “teaser” sampling from the Sage Valley Voices (who have a fabulous concert planned the next weekend!), a vocal/piano duet by Hal H. Hopson and Dorothy Moore, dancing by Delaney Wise, the Oliver Elementary School Chorus, South Okanagan Secondary School Band, the Advent Alliance ensemble, the South Okanagan Adventist Christian School Choir, and the Desert Air Men’s Chorus. What a lineup!
The concert will promote other seasonal events happening locally. Check out some of the publicity in the foyer. Fill your calendar with joyous celebrations!
The concert concludes with goodie bags for the kids. Thank you to the Oliver Ambassadors, Sheila Lange, Buy-Low Foods, and Super Valu for their support!
