Choirs of angels from last year’s school concerts

Choirs enhance the Christmas spirit

Vocal and Bells with a sing along, Dec. 16 at St. Albans in Ashcroft.

A Seasonal Choral Performance by two new local Choirs. The Sage Sound Singers and a seven piece Bell Choir offer an evening of beautiful harmonies with a Community Sing-Along on Friday, Dec. 16 at St Albans Hall, 501 Brink St. in Ashcroft. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Come early for hot chocolate and desserts. Concert begins at 8 pm.

The Concert, presented by Winding Rivers Arts & Performance Society (www.windingriversarts.ca) will feature both a traditional Vocal Chorus and a Bell Choir both conducted by Carmen Ranta.

The Sage Sound Singers is a 21 piece choral group with accompaniment by pianist Gail Koop. Our Musical Director, Michelle Reid has selected five seasonal pieces that will surely get you into the Holiday Spirit.

The local area Bell Choir are excited to be an addition to this evening. They have been borrowing a set of bells owned by the School District which are worth approximately $20,000. There is only one set in Kamloops, with two groups sharing it. Due to the cost, new handbell groups often have to fundraise for years to purchase a set. We are very fortunate to have these bells in our Community right now.

Bring the whole family for a festive Community gathering – sure to get you into the holiday season! More desserts, coffee and tea during Intermission. Admission is by a food donation to the Christmas Hampers on site.
