Make Spirits Bright with Barkley Sounds Choir

A string orchestra and handbell choir join Barkley Sounds for their annual Christmas concert Dec. 7 in Port Alberni

The Barkley Sounds Choir joins Phil's Harmonics String Orchestra and the Alberni Valley United Church Handbell Choir for their annual Christmas concert on Dec. 7 (2014) in Port Alberni.

MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT is the theme when the Barkley Sounds Community Choir and Phil’s Harmonics String Orchestra team up for another wonderful concert on Sunday, December 7th at 2:30 p.m. at the ADSS Theatre. Once again, the Choir and Orchestra will be joined by the Alberni Valley United Church Handbell Choir under the direction of Mike Villette.

Led by Conductor, Bonnie Wallbank, the Choir will sing a variety of seasonal songs and carols from around the world, including the lilting and sure-to-please Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, with its country flavour.

A highlight of the concert will be a skilful and beautiful arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon combined with Silent Night, performed by choir and orchestra.

Strings Director, Philip Wallbank, says he is sure the soundtrack medley from the Disney movie, FROZEN, will delight the audience, as well as other instrumental pieces.  The orchestra will include guest musicians from Parksville and Nanaimo.

Tickets are $10 and are available at Rollin Art Centre, Blue Fish Gallery and Salmonberry’s or $12 at the door.
