Musaic Vocal Ensemble to perform in Penticton and Summerland

Winter concerts scheduled for Dec. 13 and 14

Members of the Musaic Vocal Ensemble will present winter and Christmas music for Penticton and Summerland audiences at upcoming concerts.

The concerts will include a range of music from the swing and celebration of Go Tell It On The Mountain to the the beauty and intensity of Tchaikovsky’s Cherubic Hymn, and the traditional We Saw Three Ships.

Musicians will include pianist Dennis Nordlund, cellist Holly McCallum and harpist Debi Johnson.

A special feature will be a five-song set for choir, piano and cello by Canadian composer Sarah Quartel, entitled A Winter Day. The text of each piece recounts a different part of a Canadian winter day – from cold early morning dawn, through to the setting of the sun at the end of the day, but certainly not forgetting a bit of crazy tobogganing down a snowy hill part way through the day.

The performances will be held on Friday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Penticton United Church and on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 2:30 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Summerland.

The Musaic Vocal Ensemble formed 25 years ago in Summerland and performs throughout the Okanagan Valley.
