Seasonal selections at Sidney’s Mary Winspear Centre

The Peninsula Singers present Here We Come A-Carolling Dec. 5, 6 and 7.

The Peninsula singers will be on stage at the Mary Winspear Centre Dec. 5

Tickets are already sold out for The Peninsula Singers’ matinee show on Dec. 7. And tickets for their other two shows are going fast.

That’s how popular their annual Christmas songs concert is each year.

Here We Come A-Carolling hits the stage at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney on Dec. 5, 6 and 7. Artistic Director Glenda Korella says it’s a wonderful show, featuring the voices of 60 singers — as well as accompaniment by the audience on a few of the songs.

“The audience will have the opportunity to sing along with two or three numbers,” she said. “That just adds to the enjoyment. People can come, forget about life and enjoy the music.”

Songs like Go Tell It On The Mountain, Please Come Home For Christmas and the Swahili celebration of Bi Desembra will have people getting into the swing of the season. There will be a mix of traditional carols, blues and more, Korella said.

The Singers will perform from memory, she continued, adding actions into their performance.

They will be joined on stage by Erin Lin, 9, an acclaimed pianist who performed in last summer’s Symphony Splash, put on by the Victoria Symphony. Lin will be under the Spotlight on a Young Artist portion of the program.

The Peninsula Singers are accompanied by a small orchestra, adding recorder and violin this year.

To get tickets for this popular seasonal concert in Sidney, contact the Mary Winspear box office at 250-656-0275 or go online to www.marywinspear.ca.

The shows Dec. 5 and 6 start at 7:30 p.m. and as of Nov. 19, the Sunday matinee had sold out.
