The White Rock Children’s Choir spent time in England this year

Festive evening of music

The White Rock Children's Choir is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a Christmas concert.

The White Rock Children’s Choir, directed by founder Sarona Mynhardt, celebrates its 15th anniversary this Sunday (Dec. 4) with a Christmas concert at 6:30 p.m. at White Rock Baptist Church, 1657 140 St.

Joining the choir for the concert, The Angel Child and the Trumpeter, will be the popular locally based instrumental quintet, A Touch Of Brass.

“We’re very excited to have them join our choirs for this performance – it’s going to be a wonderful evening,” Mynhardt said.

She added the program will blend traditional favourites, such as O Christmas Tree and Ding Dong Merrily On High, popular songs, such as Let It Snow and Silver Bells, and more contemporary choral works, such as Winter Song, as recorded by Sarah Bareilles.

For the WRCC organization the year was highlighted by the choirs’  tour of England this summer to participate in choral festivals, Mynhardt said.

“We had a wonderful trip to Canterbury, Oxford and London, where we performed in so many great churches and cathedrals,” she said. “The highlights were our concerts at Holy Trinity in Stratford upon Avon – with Mr. Shakespeare listening to us – plus three concerts in Canterbury Cathedral, a very special concert in St. Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, London and the final festival concert in Southwark Cathedral with the London Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.”

Tickets ($15, $13 students and seniors) are available from Tapestry Music, by calling 604-536-0236 or at vivavoce@shaw.ca
