Community choir brings Christmas to Metchosin

Classic Christmas carols to be featured at Dec. 4 event

The Sooke Community Choir is coming to Metchosin and pulling out all the stops for their annual Christmas concert.

This year’s theme is “A Christmas Past,”  featuring classic carols and tales from pioneer days told by natural storyteller and Sooke resident Maywell Wickheim.

Conducting the choir will be Bruce Ruddell, a professional composer, playwright and musician who wrote Let Me Call You Sweetheart, which played at the Belfry Theatre in 2012.

“We are so happy to have found Bruce,” said director and public relations co-ordinator Ellen Bergerud. “He has a wonderful way of eliciting the very best from each person in the choir and ensuring the audience enjoys and engages with us.”

Accompanying the choir is pianist Gillian Lemire-Elmore.

The choir will be selling and taking orders for Christmas door decorations and table centrepieces, ranging from $10 to $25. Call ahead to order at 250-818-6441, or purchase at the concert. Treats, tea, coffee and juice will be served at intermission.

The concert begins at 7 p.m., Dec. 4 at the St. Mary of the Incarnation Church, 4125 Metchosin Rd.

Tickets are available at the Metchosin Country Market or at the door. For more details visit sookecommunitychoir.com.
