Join the annual carol sing

It is time once again for the Annual Community Carol Sing at the New Life Assembly on December 21 from 2 to 4 p.m.

It is time once again for the Annual Community Carol Sing at the New Life Assembly on December 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. This community event has been going for more than 25 years and is one of the few ecumenical events in Castlegar, with eight choirs participating from Castlegar including church choirs, the Twin Rivers Chorale, the Kootenay Men’s Choir, the USCC Vision of Peace Youth Choir and the Sounds of the Heart Choir and of course audience participation singing carols and Christmas songs.

This year the soloist is Christina Nolan, the leader of the Twin Rivers Chorale. The idea is to have an afternoon of singing Christmas carols and songs  and enjoying time together, regardless of whether one belongs to a church or not. It is also an opportunity for the talented local church and community choirs to share their music with the people of Castlegar.

Admission is by a monetary or non-perishable item donation for the local Harvest Food Bank.
