Peninsula Singers - 'Tis the Season @ Mary Winspear Centre
Friday, December 7 until Yesterday at
2243 Beacon Avenue
Artistic Director Lena Palermo has stuffed your musical stocking this year with a Gospel version of “O Holy Night”, a Calypso tune about Mary and Jesus, songs about sleigh rides and snow, and one about a young fellow named “Jonathan”, who forgot to ring the bells at Christmas. And, since the Singers had such a good time with Broadway music at their spring concert series, Lena has included Christmas numbers from the Great White Way. Of course, the men and women will split up and sing about the woes that can befall us, such as what to buy him or her–while keeping to a modest budget.
Joining the Singers will be twenty dancers from Victoria’s Stages dance school, performing numbers from the movies Polar Express and Elf.
Our “pit orchestra” will be in fine form, led by Janet Yonge on piano, Jennifer Bennett on double bass and Terry Erskine on percussion. Overseeing this bounty, our erudite and witty Master of Ceremonies, Jim Kingham.
Friday, December 7 7:30pm
Saturday, December 8 7:30pm
Sunday, December 9 2:00pm
