Carol with girls' choir
The British Columbia Girls Choir hosts a concert featuring carols and songs in Latin and Hebrew in Maple Ridge this week.
Christmas Angels, a festive afternoon concert, will include nearly 100 singers, ranging in age from 5 to 18.
The oldest girls will perform a show-stopping spiritual Children, Go Where I Send Thee, as well as take the audience on a Russian sleigh ride. The younger girls hope to find an elephant under the Christmas tree.
"The choir is sure to delight audiences of all ages with a varied program ranging from joyous carols to 17th century classics, rousing spirituals and traditional Christmas songs in three and four-part harmony," says artistic director Fiona Blackburn, who is from Maple Ridge.
Blackburn's five-choir organization is made up of singers aged four to 25 from ten communities in Metro Vancouver.
The choir will perform at 3:30 p.m. at Saint Paul's Lutheran Church, 12145 Laity Street. For ticket or to audition, call the choir at 604-542-1698 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
