Singer spreads Christmas cheer

A familiar voice is making up for a concert she missed last year.

Multi-platinum recording artist Rita MacNeil is coming to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Dec. 5 with her traditional Christmas concert.

An audience favourite for more than a decade, MacNeil had to cancel last year’s show in Vernon due to illness.

As one of Canada’s best-loved singers, her joy for the season can be felt in every note and in every story, embracing the simple wonderment that is Christmas.

She will perform songs from her collection of holiday CDs (Now The Bells Ring, Once Upon a Christmas, Joyful Sounds and Late December), which have sold in excess of 500,000 copies.

The program is a blend of songs, both original and time honoured, sung in MacNeil’s graceful style with all the warmth, spirit and passion that is so well known to her legion of fans.

MacNeil brings her Christmas concert to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller box office. Call 549-7469 or order online at www.ticketseller.ca.
