The Felton Brothers are offering a little taste of Christmas with a concert at Sylvan United Church on Dec. 23 starting at 7 p.m.

Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or apple cider, snuggle in with your family, and surround yourself in Christmas spirit as this group performs everything from favourites like White Christmas to original arrangements.

Growing up in a musical Cowichan Valley home, Zander and John Felton have sung every kind of Christmas song imaginable, accompanied by everything from bongos to double bass.

They first performed together five years ago in the Cowichan Music Festival, capturing a first, and have each gone on to follow their musical passion at university.

Zander is in his third year of vocal performance at UVIC and John is in his first year of the opera program at UBC.

Both are thrilled to return to the Cowichan Valley this Christmas before going back to continue their studies. All the funds raised at the concert will go directly into supporting their university education.

It’s all about Christmas, they say, adding, “We hope you will leave the concert feeling light hearted, happy, and more connected with the people you came with.”

Tickets are $10 each at the door.
