Tenor Ken Lavigne brings his Old Time Christmas Radio Show to Chemainus United Church Dec. 19 and 20.

His golden voice and gracious style are a wonderful throwback to the glamorous days of the radio crooners, and the concept of a live-on-the-air show is a natural fit for Lavigne.

The pride of Chemainus, he has charmed his way into the hearts of concertgoers across North America with his exciting blend of classical tenor sound and modern style.

With his spectacular songs and entertaining stories, Lavigne embodies the spirit of the underdog: audacity, tenacity and ultimately triumph.

Audience favourites include: O Sole Mio, Funiculi Funicula; Nessun Dorma, Be My Love, Loch Lomond, Danny Boy; Hallelujah, Bring Him Home and more.

He has also released a Christmas album, Comfort & Joy, which offers his take on many well-known songs of the season.

Recognized early for the outstanding timbre of his lyric tenor voice as well as the ease and agility with which he sings, Lavigne’s career has taken him as a soloist to Carnegie Hall but also, through the successful tenor trio, Romanza, throughout Canada and the United States for hundreds of concerts.

The Ken Lavigne Christmas Old Time Radio Show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19 and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20.

Advance tickets are $32 for adults, $18 for students.

At the door, you’ll play $37 for adults and $18 for students, so don’t wait. Get those seats nailed down now by calling 250-246-3592 or get them at 49th Parallel Grocery and General Store, Chemainus Foods and Chemainus and Ladysmith United Churches.

This event is also trying to help the food banks, so please bring a non-perishable food item when you arrive at the concert.
