Philomusica Chorus brings ‘Christmas Times Ten’ to Chilliwack Cultural Centre

Festive choral concert on Dec. 8 will aim to display the joy of choral singing at any age

In celebration of its 10th anniversary the Philomusica Chorus will present some of its best loved seasonal selections with Christmas Times Ten on Dec. 8.

Under the auspices of the Fraser Valley Philharmonic Society and directed by Paula Quick, the chorus will be accompanied by the Philomusica Wind Quintet (Sarah Dyck on flute, Margaret Smiley on oboe, Stacey Brereton on clarinet, Sarka Kvicinska on French horn and Helen Kahlke on baritone saxophone) and special guests Anya McRae (timpani), Rod Swanson (guitar and banjo) and Sarah Wills (double bass).

The programme will showcase the very wide range of repertoire that Philomusica Chorus has presented over its ten years of operation — from high classical to folk, jazz and contemporary, sacred and secular.

But above all, Christmas Times Ten will aim to display the joy of choral singing at any age.

Repertoire:

Ave verum corpus – Mozart, Estrella Blanca – Johnson, Follow That Star – Lewis, In dulci jubilo – Jenkins, In the Bleak Midwinter – Holst, Lux aurumque – Whitacre, Suo Gan – Werin, The Marvelous Toy – Paxton, ‘Zat You, Santa Claus? -Fox/Shaw, and more.

Christmas Times Ten by the Philomusica Chorus is Sunday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. in the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
