The Blossom Valley Singers present: Sounds of a Century

By Blossom Valley Singers

Music! An art form found in every corner of the globe, past and present. An expression of thoughts and emotions that can be understood by everyone, no matter the age or nationality. As times change, so too does the music that reflects the era in which it is born.

For our 2019 Spring Concert, The Blossom Valley Singers bring you “Sounds of a Century”, choral versions of great music from the past 100 years. We begin our whistle-stop tour in the 20s and end with some present-day hits. You will hear renditions of old favourites and jazzed up modern anthems. You may be introduced to something new, or fall in love again with a golden oldie.

Directed by the extraordinary Anita Stushnoff and accompanied by the charismatic Monte Anderson on piano, this year’s concert will also include guest performances by Key of She Choir (directed by Lynne Hopcraft), soloist Gail Southall, Kokanee Brass, and some added colour by the Christine Miller Dancers. We’re also planning to draw from our local pool of excellent musicians to help fill out our sound.

Even intermission is part of our spring concert experience. Enjoy coffee or tea served at your table by the handsome lads of the choir and snack on treats provided by the United Church Workers. And, following this year’s theme, take your best shot at “Name that Tune” for a chance to win a prize!

Join the choir on its Magical Mystery Tour through the decades, Saturday, April 13th and Sunday, April 14th, at 2:30 pm in the Creston Room at the Creston and District Community Complex. Tickets available at Black Bear Books. (Adults $15 and Youth 12 and under $8). Refreshments included.

But … wait a minute … with only one or two songs per decade, what songs will we choose for you? Come on out to the concert and find out! We hope to see you there.
