The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

Sup­port­ers of the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play have a treat for mu­sic lovers to chase the win­ter blues away.

For years, they have been or­ga­niz­ing the Mem­o­ries of Christ­mas Con­cert in Jan­uary. This has proved a pop­u­lar and suc­cess­ful event. Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play, Vance Neu­dorf says they have added a bit of a twist.

“It’s Mem­o­ries of Christ­mas, but it is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent this year be­cause it is go­ing to be themed on Han­del’s Mes­siah,” said Neu­dorf.

“The choirs got to­gether ear­lier and said (let’s take a dif­fer­ent ap­proach) so we will have some soloists and some in­stru­men­tal­ists, so it is go­ing to be fun.”

The con­cert is a fundraiser for the Cana­dian Bad­lands pas­sion play. A free-will of­fer­ing will be taken.

The Pas­sion Play is pre- par­ing for its 25th-an­niver­sary per­for­mance, and al­ready it has sold out its open­ing night.

“The other per­for­mances are sell­ing pretty well, so it is look­ing good, and there is go­ing to be some re­ally in­ter­est­ing changes this year as al­ways,” said Neu­dorf.

The con­cert is this Sun­day, Jan­uary 14 at 4 p.m. at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. It fea­tures the Rose­bud Master­works Choir, the Three Hills Com­mu­nity Choir as well as or­ches­tras and soloists.
