Remember years ago the afternoon Christmas concerts with several Oliver groups participating? The singalong? The kids? The goodies? Well, it’s ho-ho-here again!
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!
