The Langley Community Chorus performs a Christmas concert in Aldergrove on Sunday

Langley Chorus brings Christmas cheer to Aldergrove

Langley Community Chorus will present a Christmas concert series titled "Merry Fa La La!" in three Aldergrove and Langley venues

Langley Community Chorus will present a Christmas concert series titled “Merry Fa La La!” in three Aldergrove and Langley venues in coming weeks.

The Aldergrove venue will be St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, in a Sunday afternoon matinee on December 9.

The chorus is celebrating their 20th anniversary with a fun-filled concert of varied and wonderful Christmas music, with everything from A to Z, from “Ave Maria” to “‘Zat You Santa Clause?”

The Langley Community Chorus, a registered non-profit society, was founded in 1992 with 14 singers and has grown over the years to more tab 80 voices today. They are a mixed voice (SATB) choral group of various ages from Langley and neighbouring municipalities, all with a love of singing.

The chorus performs two main public concerts each year, in winter and spring, as well as shares their music at Langley seniors’ residences. They are beginning to expand their venues and guest performances with the goal of providing more opportunities to perform for the public in Langley. The chorus sings a wide variety of musical styles.

The talented music director is Anita Comba. With her extensive musical experience, sense of humour and willingness to help, Anita is a wonderful resource for the chorus, and Donna Phillips is an excellent accompanist on keyboards. The members enjoy both rehearsal times and concert performances under their leadership.

Venues and dates of their upcoming concerts are:

• Evening concert – 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 24 at Willoughby Christian Reformed Church 20525 – 72 Avenue, Langley;

• Afternoon matinee – 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2 at Sharon United Church, 21562 Old Yale Road, Langley;

• Special matinee – 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 9 at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 3025 – 264 St, Aldergrove.

Tickets prices are adult $15, students $10, and under-6 free, available at the door a half hour before each concert.
