Children’s choir ‘Youthful’ in Making Spirits Bright
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.
Join Okanagan Children’s Choir and OCC Youth for Making Spirits Bright, a performance of seasonal music, at First United Church on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m.
Tickets are available in advance from 250-869-6817 or at the door; $12 for adults, children & youth are free.
