The Cowichan Valley’s Concenti Singers will be presenting their spring concert, Here’s to Song, on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8 at the Duncan United Church starting at 2 p.m.

The choir, now in its 33rd season, will be performing a wide variety of selections including folk songs and spirituals, a new piece reflecting on memories of childhood, and even one that may have knitters in stitches.

This concert will also offer the premiere of a piece written specially for the choir by director Sheila Johnson: a new setting of the well-known Prayer of St. Francis.

The adults will be joined for this show by the junior section of the Cowichan Valley Youth Choir.

All three levels of that choir will be representing Cowichan at the Provincial Music Festival this year, and this is a great opportunity for the juniors to show the Valley just what they can do.

Admission is $15 for adults, with children under 12 admitted free. Get your tickets at Volume One Bookstore in Duncan and Concenti members, or call 250-748-4075 or 250-597-0114.
