Pearson International students give the gift of song

Metchosin Community Hall hosts school's annual Christmas concert

This Sunday (Dec. 7), voices from around the world will join in song to celebrate the holiday season.

Students from Pearson College will gather to perform their annual Christmas concert at the Metchosin Community Hall. Conducted by director Yoomi Kim, the choir of international students will delight its audience with carols old and new.

This year’s concert will also honour David Hawley, college director for nearly nine years, and his wife, Leisa Weld, before they move to The Hague, Netherlands.

The evening will also include refreshments and a $2 dessert raffle, featuring homemade confections created by Metchosin’s best bakers.

Admission is by donation, with proceeds going to the Metchosin Community Association and the Goldstream Food Bank. There will also be collection boxes for donations of non-perishable items.

The concert begins at 7 p.m., Dec. 7, at 4401 William Head Rd. For more information, call 250-478-6424 or email mcahouse@telus.net.
