Music Makers – Carols for Christmastide Sing-along – December 18, 2019 @ 2 PM

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 2:00pm

Carols for Christmastide, the annual community carol sing-along held in All Saints by-the-Sea Anglican Church, is slated this year for December 18, 2019 at 2 pm. Hosted by Music Makers of the Anglican Parish for many years, the popularity of this hour-long afternoon event may be due to timing, which allows for daylight driving, together with the ambiance of candle-lit intimacy, and the traditional sounds of the pipe organ in this acoustically excellent venue. It also offers islanders the opportunity to take a break from the Christmas rush and enjoy time together over delicious Christmas fare, including Sarah’s superb Christmas cake, mince tarts, mulled apple juice, and more.
Accompanied by Choir Director David Storm at the piano and organ, the All Saints’ Choir will be leading the familiar carols with soloists performing seasonal gems that bring Christmas straight to the heart.
Solo Soprano, Jean McLure, and the duo of Alto Anke Smeele and Soprano Connie Holmes, will be performing several favourites from their repertoire, including John Rutter’s Angels’ Carol and a carol medley arrangement by Philip Kern called A-Caroling We Go. All Saints’ Choir has also prepared some well-loved pieces, including the tender Lullay My Liking.
Admission is by cash donation, refreshments a suggested $3, with all proceeds going to the Salt Spring Island Food Bank (https://saltspringcommunityservices.ca/food-security/food-bank/).
Patrons of the Tea à Tempo series, also produced by Music Makers, should note that the next concert will be held on February 05, 2020.
