The Victoria Philharmonic Choir’s annual Christmas carol returns to St. Mary the Virgin Church on Tuesday, December 21, giving Oak Bay residents another year to release their songs in harmony.
There are two performances at the Elgin Road Church, one at 5 p.m. for all ages and another at 7:30 p.m. for ages 12 and over.
“Our singers will be masked, but the joy felt by the 60-part Victoria Philharmonic Choir and conductor Peter Butterfield as we prepare to raise our voices to song with our community once again,” the choir said in a statement. . The concert has been an annual show since 2009, with the exception of 2020.
Performers include organist / pianist Marco Vitale, an early music scholar whose career has taken him across the world, currently as Music Director at St. Barnabas Church in Victoria. On the program, traditional Christmas carols, an old French Christmas carol and pieces by John Rutter, Morten Lauridsen and Benjamin Britten.
Tickets for both shows are $ 11.17 for students and $ 21.73 for adults (plus service charge), and free for children under 12. Full proof of vaccination is required and participation is limited to 225 participants per show. Some windows can be left open to improve ventilation, so layers are advised.
