Vocal studio announces holiday concerts

The Paul Moore Vocal Studio welcomes everyone to attend their Christmas concert Dec. 10 in Vernon

Paul Moore is pleased to announce several upcoming events and initiatives for his 2017-18 season

The Paul Moore Vocal Studio welcomes everyone to attend their Christmas concert Dec. 10, 2 p.m. at All Saints Anglican Church.

Every Christmas, the Kokanee Singers gather together to perform music for their families and friends and general public who wish to listen to all time favourite carols. There will be three vocal ensembles plus soloists from Moore’s studio. All groups will sing on their own then join together to create sound together and take away a new experience. Accompanist Christine West will join the Kokanee Singers. Tickets for the concert are available at the door.

Join Moore for a magical evening of Christmas sounds to start the yuletide season, with solo concerts Dec. 15, 7 p.m. at Saint Michael’s Anglican Church in Kelowna and Dec. 16, 7 p.m. at All Saint’s Anglican Church in Vernon.

Moore will present his Christmas favorites — an ensemble of classical melodies, yuletide carols and popular contemporary choices.

“The tradition of singing the Christmas classics is followed by every operatic tenor — they all do the favourites,” Moore said. “The tradition of crossing over styles with trained voices was started by Lanza, Pavarotti, followed by Bocelli and even more so by Grobin and other male vocal groups as well.”

Guests can expect to hear hits such as Oh Holy Night, Ave Maria, Mary Did You Know and Believe – which are just a few of the holiday selections that have become some of the Festive favourites.

Featuring accomplished accompanist Graham Vink, the duo’s performance will resonate to fill the church and transport your spirit, warm your heart with the magical sounds of Christmas.

Tickets are available for $30 adult and $27 seniors, with free admission for children 12-and-under from the Ticket Seller. 250-549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.
