The award-winning Encore! Women’s Choir is back for its 10th Annual Christmas Concert, a fabulous programme that has planted its roots and become an essential part of the Cowichan Valley tradition. Music Director Christine Dandy, along with her 23 singers, and their outstanding pianist Rykie Avenant, combine past favourites with new and challenging pieces, exposing the amazing sound and musical diversity that this choir can achieve.
Encore! is excited to be performing a variety of genres; mixing traditional songs, old classics, pop songs, an exuberant spiritual, and even a little “Something New”, the latest composition by our resident composer, Deborah Sumner. Older classics such as “I”ll Be Home for Christmas”, will be be juxtaposed by newer pieces like Idina Menzel’s, “December Prayer.” Traditional tunes such as the German carol “In Dulci Jubilo” and Canadian folk song “Frobisher Bay” will be balanced with some lesser known works such as “O Magnum Mysterium” by Guy Forbes and a playful arrangement of “O Holy Night.”
This choral programme is thoughtfully planned with the audience in mind so there will be something for everyone in this intimate and joyful Christmas concert. Enjoy a collection of songs, both new and old, and get into the holiday spirit with classic carols such as “Jingle Bells” and “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
All are welcome! Come out and enjoy an afternoon of virtuosity and enchantment. This and more coming December 9th with Encore! Women’s Choir.
