Sensational harmonies, captivating melodies, and plenty of holiday magic. A Celtic Christmas with The North Shore Celtic Ensemble has it all.

The group will be bringing their unique arrangements of classic Christmas songs performed by talented young musicians to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre stage on Dec. 4.

Originally known as the Waldorf Celtic Ensemble, the North Shore Celtic Ensemble got their start in 1999 at the Waldorf school in North Vancouver. Now, with more than 55 musicians in their lineup, the ensemble has expanded into a four-ensemble, non-profit organization that performs locally and abroad. Over the years the ensemble has grown their repertoire to include a variety of genres including jazz, classical, folk, and much more.

On Dec. 4, the North Shore Celtic Ensemble will return to their Celtic roots with A Celtic Christmas, and they’ll be joined by dancers from the De Danaan School of Irish Dance.

Since its start in 2000, the De Danaan School of Irish Dance has been operating out of Burnaby and Langley. Their accomplished dancers perform and compete locally as well as internationally, and now they’re bringing one of their talented troupes for this lively festive performance.

With enchanting string music, familiar songs that’ll make you feel like curling up in front of a fire, and the intricate and beautiful flowing costumes of the dancers — this performance is sure to whisk you into a holiday bliss.

A Celtic Christmas with the North Shore Celtic Ensemble is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on December 4 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors, $30 for students, and are available at The Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
