Delta’s performance is scheduled for Monday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the South Delta Baptist Church.
We now sing Christmas Ends a two-year concert hiatus with events in New Westminster, Surrey, Delta and North Vancouver – plus, a whole new digital concert experience!
The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir (VWMC) is pleased to announce its 2021 Christmas Concert Series, Now let’s sing Christmas! Ending a two-year concert hiatus, VWMC will perform at four venues across the Lower Mainland in December and present a performance online.
As is customary for VWMC Christmas concerts, the choir will support the young musicians by sharing the stage with three high school choral ensembles, as well as two emerging singers who are the recipients of the 2021 choir scholarships. The VWMC will also be joined by two remarkable local instrumentalists, saxophonist Julia Nolan and flautist Paolo Bortolussi. Guest artists will vary for each performance, with full lineup listed on the VWMC website.
Delta’s performance is scheduled for Monday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the South Delta Baptist Church. The South Delta Secondary Choir will also be performing.
“Rehearsing together again was a real joy, and having the singers further apart from each other brought some unexpected benefits,” said Music Director Jonathan Quick. “They embrace their individual roles more and they sing really well.”
VWMC follows all COVID-19 protocols put in place by current provincial health orders and will take the stage at each concert with a smaller number of singers, with each artist fully vaccinated. All clients 12 years of age and over must also provide full proof of vaccination. With the exception of provincial exemptions, all patrons aged five and over must wear face masks inside the venue, including during the show.
“Over the past 20 months, I have missed the personal touch of choral fellowship, but even more the thrilling satisfaction and high emotionality associated with performing in front of an appreciative audience,” added Simon Baker, President of VWMC. . “It has been an honor for me to lead such a talented and dedicated group of singers, so dedicated to music and to presenting great performances to our patrons.”
New for 2021 will be a professionally recorded digital concert at Shaughnessy Heights United Church. From December 18, customers will have access to this online event at their leisure from the comfort of their own homes, until the New Years. The show will provide a safe option for those living in seniors’ residences in the Lower Mainland who , otherwise, could not attend. It will also allow VWMC enthusiasts from here and elsewhere to share the joy of Christmas.
