Entitled ‘Christmas Card’, the choir will offer some new arrangements of songs like Away In a Manger and Jingle Bells and then a few new songs, including Night of Silence and Hey Ho, Nobody Home.

To add to the occasion, the A. V. Community Band will be playing in the lobby 50 minutes before the concert.

This concert is the start of Timbre’s 43rd season in the Alberni Valley.

It will also be conductor Patricia Miller’s final season, as she will retire following Timbre’s spring concert.

Tickets are $15 for seniors and adults and $5 for students and children at Echo Centre, Finishing Touches, Rollin Art Centre, and Salmonberry’s. Tickets may be available at the door but the concerts typically sell out early.
