Let the Whole World Sing in Sidney

Support the St. Paul’s United Church Choir as they sing out the Christmas musical, Let the Whole World Sing.

SIDNEY — Why not Let the Whole World Sing. It is a great idea for this time of year and in these troubled times.

So, come and support the St. Paul’s United Church Choir as they sing out the Christmas musical by Joel Raney entitled, Let the Whole World Sing.

Under the direction of Mary Lou Day, the choir presents the Nativity story musically, incorporating original songs by the composer with favourite Christmas carols and familiar text. The choir will be joined by valued musical friends Melanie Funk (flute), Claire Mackelson (Euphonium) and Clarissa Morrison (piano).

Another reason to sing is the knowledge that the proceeds from the concert will be shared with the Sidney Lions Food Bank and St. Paul’s United Church.

This choir has a long tradition dating back to mid 1920s of sharing their musical talents and raising their voices in song to fundraise for charitable organizations and services in the community.

Over the years, many groups in the community have benefited from these musical fund-raising initiatives.  This year is no exception as the choir shares the proceeds as well as the holiday spirit of the concert.

Come join the St. Paul’s Choir and help to get the whole world singing.
