Williams Lake’s TubaJohn Concert a jolly event

What TubaJohn concert could be complete without a brass band to close out the evening - and of course a few sing along carols to go with? Here the Cariboo Christmas Brass Ensemble blasts out a jolly tune.
The Cariboo Men’s Choir opened the 12th Annual TubaJohn concert with a lovely rendition of What a Wonderful World.
Quintet Plus, a Cariboo choir that doesn’t require auditions, sang Christmas carols new and old to the packed audience at St. Andrews United Church during the TubaJohn Concert on Dec. 13.
The Synergy quartet, made up of Sandi Alaric, William Wallace, Sharon Hoffman and Harry Jennings, add their voices to the music at the TubaJohn concert on Dec. 13.

Admission to the concert was by donation (cash or non persishable item) to the Salvation Army’s food bank. Dina Kennedy and Tom Bingham were on hand to help collect what was donated.

The pews were packed at the St. Andrews United Church on Dec. 13, for the annual TubaJohn Christmas Concert.

Audience members were treated to Christmas carols and arrangements from four different musical groups: the Cariboo Men’s Choir, Quintet Plus, the Synergy Quartet, and, of course, the Cariboo Christmas Brass Band.

The music and the atmosphere were a delight to behold.
