What better way to kick off the holiday season than with the Peninsula Singers 2019 show Christmas Magic. You’ll experience the powerful sound of more than 65 exuberant male and female voices, an impeccably talented show band and featured performances by young local performers.
Artistic Director Lena Palermo has carefully selected music from the past and present, that will delight the whole family.
You’ll hear modern-day holiday classics like ’Sparklejollytwinklejinglely’ from Elf, experience the nostalgia of ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ and ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’, remember spiritual favourites like ‘Shepards Go Tell’, swing to ‘Be boppin Santa Claus’ and get a little jazzy with ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’.
Enjoy contemporary twists on Chopin and Tchaikovsky’s with ‘Christmas in a Minute’, and ‘The Nutcracker March’, variations of ‘Jingle Bells’, harmonious music medleys and many more.
The women of the Singers will warm your heart with ’ Sleep in Heavenly Peace’ and the men pay an amusing tribute to rock ‘n roll with, ‘An Elvis Christmas”.
The Spotlight on a Young Artist will feature Jordan Shillingford, who played Sophie in the Peninsula Players’ Mamma Mia. STAGES Dance Company returns this year with spectacular and energetic dance performances to familiar holiday favourites, masterfully choreographed by Kim Breiland.
The show’s enthusiastic and professional instrument ensemble adds rich harmonies and rhythms to the chorus with the accompanist, Janet Yonge; percussionist, Terry Erskine; and violinist Margaret Dzbik.
All of this music magic comes together with narration and light-hearted humour by the engaging Master of Ceremonies, Jim Kingham.
So banish those humbugs, gather family and friends together, and experience the sounds of Christmas Magic with your hosts, The Peninsula Singers.
