Okana­gan Chil­dren’s Choir shares the stage with new lineup ad­di­tion, OCC Youth

What bet­ter way to ring in the Christmas sea­son than with joy­ful mu­sic, sung by joy-filled young singers?

Okana­gan Chil­dren’s Choir is no stranger to Kelowna mu­si­cal stages, hav­ing reg­u­larly per­formed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Okana­gan Sym­phony Or­ches­tra and other lo­cal en­sem­bles.

This year, how­ever, their Christmas con­cert will be ex­tra spe­cial, as they will share the stage with the new­est ad­di­tion to the Okana­gan Chil­dren’s Choir fam­ily – OCC Youth.

Founded in Septem­ber 2018 by mu­sic director Tay­lor Bone and as­so­ciate director Frances Chi­as­son, OCC Youth is a choir for young singers of all voice types in Grades 8-10 who love to sing and want to make mu­sic to­gether to a high stan­dard.

Mak­ing Spir­its Bright will be the de­but per­for­mance of OCC Youth and the com­mu­nity’s first chance to hear this won­der­ful group of singers.

From tra­di­tional Christmas clas­sics, such as God Rest You Merry, Gentle­men and Carol of the Bells, to con­tem­po­rary hits like White Win­ter Hym­nal, you will be sure leave in the Christmas spirit.

Not only will you have the op­por­tu­nity to hear these two won­der­ful choirs per­form, but you’ll also have the chance to join in the car­ol­ing your­self, as they will in­clude sev­eral au­di­ence sing-along favourites.
