Green, red, orange and yellow, blue, gold, silver and white.
“The Colours of Christmas” by John Rutter is the theme song for this year’s Christmas concert (photos from last year’s here) by Creston’s popular community choir, the Blossom Valley Singers, at 7 p.m. Dec. 11 and 2:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at Prince Charles Theatre. This year’s music selection will entertain everyone with a variety of traditional and current Christmas songs.
The colour blue takes a ladies’ ensemble on a shopping frenzy, while Rudy (a.k.a. Rudolph) has never been so much fun in red. The traditional holly carols cover the green, and expect some white snow-related music, as well. A Calypso carol from the West Indies and the traditional spiritual “Amen! Tell it on the Mountain” liven up the concert.
The choir again will be conducted by Anita Stushnoff and accompanied by Monte Anderson, two of the most talented musicians and teachers in the valley.
The choir will welcome some special guest artists, including children’s voices to round out a very entertaining Christmas concert. There will also be the usual concert singalong of your favourite Christmas carols and once again, by popular demand, the finale will have you standing to the traditional “Hallelujah” chorus.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for ages 12 and under, available from choir members, Black Bear Books or Creative Fix.
