An international touring orchestra and choir is about to fill the gymnasium at A.L. Fortune Secondary School this weekend.

Based near the communities of Lytton and Lillooet, the Fountainview Academy Orchestra and Choir has toured Eastern Europe, Central America, North America, and is regularly broadcast internationally on several Christian television networks, and has been seen on Canada’s CTV.

The group’s live concert features huge orchestral renditions of gospel classics, and they have released 12 professional albums and four DVD recordings.

Their most recent release, Joy to the World, features the entire orchestra and choir (85 musicians) playing and singing as they ride aboard the Kettle Valley Steam Railway in Summerland. It also features winter scenes from the B.C. mountains.

Fountainview’s latest project was filmed earlier this year on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, and features three DVDs with incredible scenery including thundering surf on the rocky and sandy coasts, lush flower gardens, and high mountain cliffs.

The DVD is expected for release in the near future. More information is available at

The Fountainview Academy Orchestra and Choir performance  at A.L. Fortune, 500 Bass Ave., Enderby, takes place Saturday at 5 p.m.

The concert is free and seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.  For more information call 250-546-3665.
