It’s coming to that time of year again and to get ready for the season, the Fountainview Academy Orchestra and Choir will present A Saviour is Born live in concert at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Thursday, Nov. 21.

The special family Christmas experience, coming to communities across B.C., will see the orchestra and choir perform masterful arrangements of holiday favourites such as Joy to the World, Angels from the Realms of Glory, and a thrilling rendition of George F. Handel’s The Hallelujah Chorus as well as an all-new student orchestrated composition of the classic, Go Tell it On the Mountain.

“Great for young and old alike, this holiday concert is a must-see. Even for non-Christians, it is easy to share this free gift of the season with your family, friends and neighbours,” said Fountainview music director Crag Cleveland.

The Fountainview Academy Orchestra and Singers are a group of eager, aspiring, celebrated young musicians from Lillooet, B.C., whose passion is to share the gospel through music and song.

Touring throughout Europe, Central America and North America, including Hawaii, they share their passions in concert performances to live audiences while recording on location in film productions.

Featured on various international Christian TV networks, the group has also performed on CTV and at various venues during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

They have released 12 albums and seven DVD recordings.

Most recent is their film project, A Mighty Fortress, filmed in five countries in Europe this past summer.

Admission to Fountainview’s concert at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m., is free.
