A community sing-along of traditional carols, with risers filled with toddlers to grandparents, backed up by sophisticated four-part harmony and a small dose of serious choral repertoire, all in one Christmas Concert!
Conducted by Peter Butterfield, VPC's annual event includes joyous music by JS Bach accompanied by a chamber orchestra and contemporary works by Bob Chilcott and John Rutter. The audience participation songs are classics of Christmas repertoire, with soaring harmonies and descants provided by the 80 voice choir and visiting Vancouver organist, Michael Molnar.
And while VPC’s concert tends to be a Rudolph-free zone, the young choristers of the future have their own featured spots on the program.
Seating is first-come, first-served, though the front few rows are reserved for families with small children. Doors open by 6.30.
