IROQUOIS – The joyous season of Christmas is here.
And to welcome this most wonderful time of the year, the Seaway Valley Singers are presenting their 2018 concert on Sunday, December 2, at 3 p.m. at Iroquois United Church in Iroquois.
This much anticipated winter concert, entitled In Dulci Jubilo, draws together 42 voices from this and surrounding communities. The singers perform under the direction of conductor Robert Jones, with musical accompaniment by Margaret Whisselle.
Formed in 1993, the non-profit Seaway Valley Singers are an accomplished and well-respected choir, whose winter and spring concerts draw large and appreciative audiences. The Singers welcome any new members who would like to share the gift of music to join them in the new year.
Gerry Rosenquist returns as the Master of Ceremonies for this winter concert.
In Dulci Jubilo will feature a wonderful and heady mixture of several secular and sacred songs of Advent, Christmas and Hanukkah.
From the beauty of the traditional Sussex Carol and Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus to a Beach Boys style version of Frosty the Snowman, the program promises to be varied and crowd-pleasing.
After all, who wouldn’t look forward to that classic ‘carol’, P.D.Q. Bach’s Good King Kong?
Annette McRae will be featured on the recorder in Maurice Ravel’s Pavane for a Silent Night.
Tickets for the Christmas concert featuring the Seaway Valley Singers are $12 in advance and available from choir members and Pharmachoice pharmacies in Morrisburg, Winchester and Chesterville. At the door, the price is $15, with student tickets $10. Children under 12 are free of charge.
For an evening of “Sweet Rejoicing” join the Seaway Valley Singers on December 2, 3 p.m., at Iroquois United Church.
