Two annual Christmas music traditions are coming up this week to help make Christmas a little brighter for those less fortunate.
The seventh annual TubaJohn’s Christmas Concert with Friends is happening this Wednesday evening, Dec. 12 starting at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Church.
Williams Lake Community Band members will perform favourite Christmas and seasonal songs. The Cariboo Men’s Choir and Quintet Plus Choirs will also be performing.
There is also room in the program for some old-fashioned carol singing.
Admission is a donation to the Salvation Army Christmas cheer program.
Then on Friday evening, Dec. 14 the Williams Lake Community Band will be performing in the Williams Lake city council chambers starting at 7 p.m.
“This concert is always a guaranteed fun time to be had by anyone young or old,” says band director Michael Butterfield.
“Be prepared to be entertained and enlightened by this years’ program, which will feature some very special guests, including renowned author Sage Birchwater, vocalists George White, Harry Jennings, Suzanne Butterfield, and guitarist Brian Sawyer,” Butterfield says.
He says all proceeds from this concert will go to local charities, so please bring non-perishable food items and/or cash donations.
