Louise Rose plays benefit concert

Victoria-based musician hosts concert to help the Good News Choir

Composer, recording artist, communicator and motivational speaker Louise Rose and friends will play dress-up for the Victoria Good News Choir.

The audience is invited to come in costume – maybe win a prize – and join Rose with Jamie Hillier and Sing Your Joy. All performers are donating their time.

The Victoria Good News Choir is a true community choir and is accepting new members. Rose has been the choir’s accompanist, music director and arranger since she founded it as a project to raise funds for Claremont secondary’s theatre program in 1997.

The event happens Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Oak Bay United Church, 1355 Mitchell St. Tickets are $20, available at Larsen Music, Long & McQuade, Ivy’s Bookstore, Bubby Rose’s Bakery and at the door. Proceeds benefit the Victoria Good News Choir. For more information email info@victoriagoodnewschoir.com or call 250-658-1946.
