Rejoice! Christmas in Song Concert

School and church choirs from all corners of the Island and from various denominations will gather to present a special Christmas concert, Rejoice! Christmas in Song, at 7 pm on December 6 at St. Dunstan’s Basilica in Charlottetown. Coordinated by Grace Christian School and spearheaded by their music director, Julie Wilting, this musical offering showcases musicians united in song as the festive season approaches. Between each choral piece presented, the audience will be invited to sing carols accompanied by Basilica organist Leo Marchildon and The Weiler Family from Central Christian Church. Interspersed throughout the program will be instrumental solos performed by organist Jason Chen, as well as a performance by the Singing Strings. Choirs include the Legion Choir, the St. Dunstan’s Basilica choir and St. Andrew’s Anglican Choir. The inspiration for this concert stemmed from Julie’s efforts to locate performances of choral music on television for her aging mother-in-law. In her search, she stumbled across a program entitled “The Big Sing” airing from the Royal Albert Hall in England, featuring various choral groups. The idea was to follow through on this concept in Charlottetown. Rejoice! Christmas in Song is the result of this vision.

Admission is by free will offering and by donation of non perishable canned food items for the food bank.
