Vancouver Chamber Choir to Celebrate the Season with Carols & Readings in THE CHRISTMAS STORY
Vancouver Chamber Choir presents THE CHRISTMAS STORY, Carols & Readings of the Season at 8pm Friday, December 16, 2016 at Ryerson United Church.
The Christmas spirit can be expressed in so many ways: gently, robustly, ceremonially, intimately, poetically, grandly, angelically, rustically, liturgically or by the simplest song or phrase.
Kevin Zakresky leads the Vancouver Chamber Choir in a banquet of seasonal music, with a cameo appearance from Fiona Blackburn and the British Columbia Girls Choir.
