Celebrate winter, chorus style


What: Winter Concert

Where: MY Place

When: Saturday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m.

Winter’s more than coughs, colds and expensive power bills, y’know. It’s also one of the most inspirational times for singers and songwriters to get into the spirit of the season.

In recognition of this, Millennium Place in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Whistler are holding their annual Winter Concert. They’ve asked The Whistler Singers and Moving Chords Youth Show Choir, to perform the snowy season’s best selections, which you can witness this Saturday for just $5.

The afternoon event will feature Whistler’s own singing wonder, the 11 year-old Ali Milner, who is doing big things on Vancouver’s choir circuit. She’ll sing four songs to open.

She’ll be joined by the Whistler Singers, under conductor Glenn Irvine’s direction. This collection of creative talent range from 20 to 65 years of age and seem to be a breeding ground for some of the best voices in the country. Ex-Whistler Singers members have gone on to major national choruses, including the award-winning musica intima.

Next in the lineup will be the Moving Chords Youth Show Choir, who combine simple actions and sign language with peaceful songs. They are a group of 45 kids aged from six to 11 and an absolute joy to watch.

Singing a mixture of traditional carols and other winter-vibe songs, the acts will come together at the end for one almighty jam-style close.
