Our spring concert is just around the corner and we hope the communities of the North Thompson Valley will come out and support us.  And if you have friends and family in Kamloops, or if you are heading in there on a Sunday shop or outing, please come and support us there too.

Peace Concert is in Barriere on Friday night (May 10) at the Pentecostal Christian Life Assembly Church at 7 p.m.   The Clearwater performance is on Mother’s Day (at the Clearwater Ski Lodge at 4 p.m.), and in Kamloops the weekend after on the Sunday (May 19) at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church at 4 p.m.

We have a full program of 16 songs, including the men singing accapella with guest soloist, Jordene Conroy, and other instruments in the performance will be mandolin and guitar (Bill Fowler), cello (Petrina Crane), organ (Bonnie Grusing), djembes (Sharon Neufeld and Sandi Wilcox), violin (Lorne Wright), with other various percussion instruments.

So come on out and join the choir in celebrating spring and peace with songs that are familiar, fun and sure to bring you a peaceful easy feeling.
