A silvery snowscape will be the ambience for the Blossom Valley Singers’ Winter Wonderland Christmas concert at Prince Charles Theatre on Dec. 13 and 15. This year’s theme brings together traditional and popular favourites, including the slow ’50s rock Slow Dancing in the Snow, a medley from Irving Berlin’s White Christmas and John Rutter’s breathtaking Carol of the Magi for choir, violincello and organ.

In traditional fashion, Blossom Valley Singers has recruited local artists and groups to bring that extra sparkle into the performance. Featured in this year’s concert are the Key of She, cellist Sophia Smith, a trumpet accompaniment by Poul Christenson, tone chimes and percussion, and the Creston Children’s Choir directed by Anita Stushnoff.

This season marks the third year of Blossom Valley Singers’ use of the Prince Charles Theatre for their Christmas concerts.

“We’re still the same choir, even without the ‘singing’ Christmas tree,” said BVS president Erwin Buchholz.

The singing Christmas tree enjoyed many years of service, but had to be retired when the old sanctuary of Trinity United Church was no longer available. Instead of “in” the tree, the choir now sings “among” the trees in a setting reminiscent of sleigh bells and snowscapes.

Tickets for Winter Wonderland are available at Black Bear Books. The shows run at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Dec. 15.
