Community chorus brings Christmas here with song

The spirit of the holiday season will soon be brought to life at a special performance presented by the Rimbey Community Chorus.

The spirit of the holiday season will soon be brought to life at a special performance presented by the Rimbey Community Chorus.

The chorus, which has been practicing every week since October, will perform Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Rimbey Community Centre. Annette Boorman will lead the singers, who will be accompanied by pianists Kim Siebold and Grace Bennik.

Boorman is looking forward to the evening, noting that 42 singers have joined the chorus this year.

“Some of our music is new; some is the same. We have different styles including some African pieces and some traditional. It’s all Christmas music.”

During its performance the chorus will sing 12 selections. The audience is invited to join in during a couple of the songs.

Boorman said the chorus was open to anyone in the community who simply wanted to sing.

“We have some people who read music and some who don’t even read a note.”

Boorman, who has led the group for several years, is pleased when the audience enjoys the music. She is especially happy to watch the singers come together and to help them blend their voices and combine their musical gifts to make beautiful music.

“That’s very rewarding for me.”

A free will offering that will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrans Bank will be taken during the performance lasting about 90 minutes.

The Rimbey branch of the ATB is picking up the cost of the hall rental.
