Island Bel Canto Singers Welcomes the Holidays “with Joyful Ring!”

Christmas is fast approaching, and Island Bel Canto Singers is ready to celebrate with a beautiful selection of seasonal and Christmas music at their upcoming concert, with Joyful Ring!

With a nod to the ringing of bells at Christmas time, as in the classic Jingle Bells (to be sung this time with a twist!), Artistic Director Sharon Sinclair has chosen a delightful variety of songs for this concert to showcase the diverse range of music of this all-women’s choir. They will perform familiar traditional songs as well as intriguing contemporary compositions, including songs in French, German and Catalan, and several solos by members of the choir. The chamber ensemble from among the choir will also perform.

Sharon Sinclair is well known in Nanaimo as a popular voice and piano teacher, the director of the accomplished Sinclair Singers young-adult choir, and a singer with the Island Consort Chamber Choir. A lifelong choral music lover, Sharon believes “singing in a group has a way of opening us up to many wonderful experiences, and is good for us on so many levels—emotionally, physically, spiritually. I can’t imagine a life without song.”

Island Bel Canto Singers is pleased to have the very talented local harpists Hayley Fahrenholtz and Kaleigh Stroink perform as their guests and also accompany the choir on two songs.

Island Bel Canto Singers thanks The City of Nanaimo, the Culture and Heritage Committee, and Thrifty Foods, whose support has made these concerts possible.
