HOW FAR IS IT TO BETHLEHEM …
Join us for a Christmas concert that will warm hearts and calm busy lives, with beautiful music by Carillo, J. Handl, Britten and Parker/Shaw, favourite carols, and even a few rousing sing-alongs! Come, be inspired by the youthful energy of the Burnaby Central Secondary School Chamber Choir, a nationally acclaimed ensemble – and our special guests – under the talented direction of Carrie Taylor. And prepare to be enlightened by our third annual musicological journey through the 12 Days of Christmas!

A CHORAL BOUQUET
Come share with us some of the most wonderful and inspiring music in the choral repertoire as we visit the hot-blooded streets of Spain, the cool lanes of Gershwin’s America, the inspired path of African-Americans and the sumptuous boulevards of France – as uplifting and colourful as a bouquet of spring flowers!
Amabilis is thrilled to share the stage with our friends, the Okanagan Festival Singers, under the talented direction of Leroy Wiens. The OFS has developed into one of the foremost choral ensembles in the BC Interior and have created their own unique place in the hearts of Okanagan audiences. Works by Burleigh, Fauré, Feldman, Gershwin, Hawley, Lauridsen, Martin, Morricone, Rautavaara and Stopford.
