The award-winning Coastal Sound Youth Choir will sing you into a Christmas mood with a concert next week.

Choir director Carrie Tennant says the two-hour long performance will feature a range of music including traditional and new Christmas favourites.

The choir, with more than 30 singers from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, will also perform to music by Mendelssohn, Jussi Chydenius (of Rajaton) and Vancouver composers Stephen Smith, Larry Nickel and Diane Loomer.

The Coastal Sound Youth Choir is part of the Coastal Sound Music Academy, a non-profit society based in Coquitlam. The academy, which began 22 years ago, offers choral music programs to people of all ages and promotes kindness and connection through vocal performing.

The academy’s youth choir consists of 65 members, aged 14 to 22.

The choir recently returned from Edmonton, where it performed at Voices West. The choir also placed first in the National Music Festival in August.
