Men give voice to Christmas season

Look for a mixed bag of music when the Shuswap Men’s Chorus perform their Christmas concert on Dec. 9

Look for a mixed bag of music when the Shuswap Men’s Chorus perform their Christmas concert on Dec. 9.

Noel! & Carol Sing-A-Long will take place at 7:30 p.m. at First United Church, with chorus director Mary Landers, accompanied by Jim Johnston and Jean MacLennan.

“It’s going to be quite an interesting and different concert,” says chorus member Doug Leatherdale.

“We have some new, interesting music, some is a bit comical, some is African music and some is traditional. It’s eclectic to say the least.”

Leatherdale says members of the chorus are pleased to have been invited to sing one of their concert numbers at the Salmon Arm Community Band concert on Saturday, Dec. 5.

“We will sing one of Dr. Seuss’ songs about the grinch that stole Christmas,” he says. “Jim has rewritten part of the music to accommodate a sing-along and it will be a preamble to a wonderful concert we’re putting on.”

Leatherdale warns that, in the past, Shuswap Men’s Chorus concerts have always sold out.

Tickets for $10 are available at the Pink Cherry on Hudson Avenue, Shuswap Clothing and Shoes on Alexander and members of the Shuswap Men’s Chorus.
