Twin Rivers Community Choir presents Home for Christmas

Castlegar choir will have two performances in December.

Castlegar’s own Twin Rivers Community Choir is excited to announce their 2019 Christmas concert, entitled Home for Christmas. The concert will bring the holiday season alive to audiences through melodies, old and new. With a wide variety of songs and ensembles, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

“Our audiences tell us that our concerts have become the launching point for their seasonal festivities,” says choir director and Castlegar Citizen of the Year Christina Nolan. “Our concertgoers often comment on the growth of the choir in numbers and abilities over the years, and this year will be no disappointment!”

In addition to their evening shows, The Twin Rivers Community Choir is also proud to host a new, special matinee performance featuring the Castlegar Community Children’s Choir. This unique show will feature material to delight families of all ages.

“Members of our own West Kootenay Camera Club have been working hard to provide us with media materials which will add another amazing dimension to the performances,” says Nolan.

Concerts will take place on Dec. 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m. with the special matinee performance Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. at the Old Castle Theatre 185 Columbia Ave. Grab some hot chocolate after Winterfest and head over to hear some of the incredible talent in the community.

Tickets are available now at Castlegar Realty or Mountain High Lighting. The last several seasons have sold out so be sure to get your tickets early.
